  • SCSRC Annual Conference Cancelled

    Hurricane flagsDue to Hurricane Dorian, we have decided to cancel the SCSRC Annual Conference in Myrtle Beach. The program committee is diligently working to determine the best way to refund your registration fee. More information pertaining to this will be sent out in the next several days. Please allow us time to work on this.

    If your hotel registration was booked through the SCSRC event rate found on our website, your reservation will be automatically cancelled. Please do not call the hotel if this method was used. If you booked your room through another method, you will need to cancel your reservation.

    We held out as long as we felt we could when making this decision. There have been many hours invested in the planning of this conference and we are looking into possibly rescheduling this event. We want to allow everyone ample time to make arrangements for their family in preparation for Dorian.

    Stay safe!
