A message from SCACPA CEO Chris Jenkins:


  • It’s time to renew your SCACPA Membership! We’re thrilled to continue to serve you under the All Inclusive Membership model in the coming year. See what all you helped us accomplish last year in our year in review.
    • 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.
  • Your 2019-2020 SCACPA Dues packet should be in your mailbox this week! If you have questions about your membership, the SCACPA staff is available from 8:30AM – 5PM, Monday through Friday, at 803.791.4181 or communications@scacpa.org.
  • 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!


  • Thank you to everyone who’s come out to Chapter events over the last few weeks and a huge shout out to Chapter Officers who make social events possible. You can find photos from events on our Facebook page. Tag yourself!
  • 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! We’re dedicated to growing the student pipeline and providing teachers with the tools they need to communicate the need for accounting professionals and encourage students to explore the profession. Teachers, click here to register.
  • 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?
  • Students, SCACPA Scholarships close May 31! Check out our Student Membership page for the set of instructions on how to apply. Over $40,000 was awarded to students across the state last year – so apply today!
  • Pee Dee Chapter members, join us on Tuesday, May 7, to help us make a difference in the lives of children and their families in our area who are in need of support at Help4Kids! We will gather at Help4Kids and pack bags of food to send home with children so that their families can have food for the weekend. The more hands we have, the more meals we can pack and the bigger difference we can make in our community. Mark your calendars today for this important service project. Register 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!
