IMPORTANT DUES REMINDER: SCACPA members paid a dues renewal rate of $700 in 2018 because every local Chapter contributed a $99 discount as a one-time only introductory rate for the All-Inclusive Membership package. Having heard the feedback of members like you, the All-Inclusive dues have given our members more options, better options and better content. We look forward to giving you this level of service and more moving forward at the $799 annual membership price.
The Communications and Membership departments are working on updating website information and creating renewal packets as we approach the end of our Membership year (June 30, 2019). We are going to continue to communicate the benefits of All Inclusive Membership and how the model has allowed for greater flexibility and increased benefits for members.
SCACPA Content Products are in the works! In addition to standard tips and tricks, our content guide for interviewing will feature quotes from members about what they specifically look for in candidates. We’re also putting together information on how to market your CPA firm. Stay tuned!
SCACPA’s Annual Meeting will be held on May 16 during lunch at Spring Splash. The annual meeting is free for members to attend.
We are excited to host high school teachers from around the region at the AICPA’s APBP: Advanced Accounting Training here in the SCACPA office!

SCACPA is the only organization in the state the protects and promotes the CPA profession. Now that tax season has officially begun, we’re going to be promoting our #WhyCPA campaign to spread awareness about the differences between an accountant and a CPA, and why choosing a CPA is a smart long-term financial decision. We know choosing a CPA is the right decision, don’t you?

Central Chapter members, your Chapter Officers have put together two great events for you and your family to enjoy!
Take a break from tax prep and go mad over some basketball with us on March 21 at J’s Corner. Network with your fellow Central Chapter members, enjoy two free drinks from the open bar and light hors d’oeuvres while taking in some March Madness games.
The Central Chapter’s headed to Segra Park (formerly Spirit Communications Park) on May 5 to catch the Fireflies in action, where all proceeds will benefit the PAC. Register for either event here.
SCACPA Connect is our professional networking platform where members can engage and interact with each other. Your SCACPA Connect login credentials are the same as your scacpa.org login information. You can use SCACPA Connect to ask questions where other members and experts can give answers or advice. With the complexity of the new tax law, we know it is important to create a space where our CPAs can get answers fast – SCACPA Connect allows you to do just that!
If you or someone you know is interested in expanding your network, improving your community, and strengthening your local Chapter, we urge you to consider volunteering as a 2019-2020 Chapter Officer! Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on volunteer opportunities.
