With dues renewal time just around the corner, SCACPA wants to remind everyone that All-Inclusive annual membership dues at the Fellow level* are $799. 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.

(* 100% Firm employees may elect to join at the $799 rate, which would provide access to in-person seminars and conferences.)

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.

There Will be More Than 800 Hours of CPE to Choose From

The new 2019-20 SCACPA CPE Catalog has over 800 hours to select from.

Look for it to be included in your renewal packet, in the Q2 issue of South Carolina CPA Report magazine and online at www.scacpa.org/events. Remember, this course catalog only makes up 80% of our offerings. We add additional courses for hot topics as the year progresses, so keep looking to your South Carolina CPA Report magazine and Current Assets e-newsletter to get the latest news in CPE!

News About Restoring Your 40-Hour CPE Bank

The SCACPA staff hopes that all members have been enjoying an improved CPE experience since the Association’s transition in 2018 to All-Inclusive Membership. With calendar year 2018 in the rearview mirror, we understand that many members likely have used most – if not all – of the 40 hours contained in the CPE Bank.

That’s why we’d like to share some reminders about the CPE Bank so you can continue to make the most of it in the future.

Every SCACPA Member will get a new 40-hour Bank upon renewing your membership at the Fellow level* for the July 1, 2019-June 30, 2020 membership year.

(* 100% Firm employees may elect to join at the $799 rate, which would provide access to in-person seminars and conferences.)

Renewal notices will be mailed in May. Once we receive your dues payment, your 40 hours are restored, and you are free to begin registering for SCACPA CPE classes, even if it is before the July 1 start of the new membership year (hello, Spring Splash, May 16-17 in North Charleston!).

For Membership Renewals, the CPE Bank Does Not Grant Credit for Rollover Hours – On July 1, the first date of each SCACPA Membership year, CPE Banks are reset to no more than 40 hours, regardless of how many hours remain or were unused from the past Membership year.

We’re Eager to Hear Your Suggestions for Topics and Speakers

The SCACPA CPE course schedule is constructed by CPAs, for CPAs.
