CPA awardState Representative Bill Sandifer has been recognized by the South Carolina Association of Certified Public Accountants for his exemplary support of the CPA profession.

The recognition Sandifer received was the first of its kind that the association has ever presented, making it a special honor.

“It was a most obvious choice for us to recognize Rep. Sandifer at this time,” said SCACPA President and CEO Erin Hardwick Pate. “He has for many years supported our efforts to see that the profession is stringently and well regulated. Most recently, his leadership ensured that a bill was passed (H.3459), which made some important changes to strengthen the state Board of Accountancy.”

Sandifer, who lives in Seneca, represents Oconee County’s House District 2. He recently was elected to a fourth term as chairman of the House Labor, Commerce, and Industry Committee, which addresses all business-related legislation.
