Happenings provides a weekly update on how SCACPA Staff members are working for you.  Learn what projects are in the works and how we’ve been promoting the CPA Profession.

Week May 21 – 25

ADVOCATE
Unfortunately, when the session adjourned on May 10, the fate of a Tax Conformity bill remained in serious question. The good news is that legislators have signaled their intent to come back in session and deal with Conformity before the end of the year.

The House did send a Tax Conformity bill H. 5341 to the Senate, where it was referred to the Senate Committee on Finance for consideration. The Senate, in the final week of the session, introduced S. 1258, the “South Carolina Taxpayer Protection and Relief Act,” which received one reading before also being sent to the Committee on Finance. Read full advocacy update here.

COMMUNICATE
Thank you to all the participants in the Spring Splash Accounting Conference last week! The staff had a great time executing this event and meeting members in person. We sent out a survey for participants to complete so we can continue to improve our CPE services for members. Although the time to complete the survey has passed, we would still love to hear what you thought of the conference. Email communications@scacpa.org 

The communications team will continue to report any issues our members have to our tech team, answer questions and concerns about membership and weekly electronic publications.

We thank you for your patience and understanding while we update the site. If you have any issues give us a call and we will be happy to help you.

EDUCATE
The CPE team continues to work hard to secure facilities and speakers. We are currently looking for qualified speakers on SC tax law. If you or someone you know can fill this position please contact cpe@scacpa.org.

CONNECT
The membership team continues to work closely with our current and future chapter leaders. We will assist in the planning and executive of fun networking events for each chapter!
