SCAC is pleased to offer a workshop for county council chairs and vice chairs. The session will be offered in conjunction with the Association’s Mid-Year Conference and Institute of Government for County Officials classes in February. The workshop will be held concurrent with the Institute of Government for County Officials on Thursday, February 20, 2020 from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Columbia. This workshop will be offered free-of-charge. We ask that you please register by February 14 for the workshop in addition to registering for the Mid-Year Conference and/or Institute of Government for County Officials classes if you plan to attend both.  


This workshop is open to all council chairmen and vice chairmen. Participants will discuss the duties, powers, and responsibilities of the chair and vice chair leadership positions. Strategies for running effective meetings, the importance of rules of procedure, and building effective working relationships will also be addressed. Although the session will be geared toward new chairs and vice chairs, experienced chairs and vice chairs are encouraged to attend. This workshop is offered free-of-charge and participants will earn three hours of credit toward Level II certification.


The registration deadline for the workshop is February 14, 2020. Although there is no registration fee, council chairs and vice chairs who plan to attend are asked to register. Please note – this workshop will be offered at the same time as the Employment Law and The Property Taxation Process Institute classes.


If your county’s council chair and/or vice chair will change this month, you will be able to register the newly-selected individuals by the registration deadline. If you have any questions or need additional information about the workshop, please contact Anna Berger at or 1-800-922-6081, ext. 321. If you have questions regarding registration, please contact Pearl Khalif-Govan at or 1-800-922-6081 ext. 323.
