SCSRC 49th Annual Conference 2020

Sep 08 2020  -  Sep 11 2020

Cancelled

With heavy hearts, the Program Committee has made the decision to cancel the 2020 SCSRC Annual Conference. Unfortunately, due to the circumstances surrounding Covid-19 and the uncertainty of the increasing number of cases, the SCSRC has determined hosting the annual conference could be potentially dangerous to the practitioners attending the event. The committee has worked tirelessly for the past several months, along with the Hilton hotel, to explore options and modify the agenda to adhere to social distancing guidelines; however, we feel with the number of cases on the rise it would be irresponsible to move forward with a live conference. We are exploring the possibilities of hosting some virtual events in the future. In the meantime, please visit the AARC links listed below if you are seeking educational opportunities. There is not a better time to renew/join AARC than now!

On behalf of the SCSRC and the program committee, I would like to thank all the practitioners, speakers and exhibitors for your willingness to support the SCSRC and your understanding during this difficult and unusual time.

Refunds will be issued within the next 5-10 business days. Any hotel reservation made under the SCSRC hotel block will be cancelled by the Hilton. If you did not book under the hotel block (Expedia, Groupon, etc.) please make sure that you cancel your reservation.

Respectfully submitted,
Holly Lever, RRT, RCP
SCSRC Vice President- Program Committee Chair

49th Annual Conference Agenda (Draft 3-03-20)

Frequently Asked Questions

Conference fees cover your meals (breakfast each morning, Wednesday evening celebration dinner, Thursday lunch with the vendors), cost of sponsoring speakers, conference supplies, etc.

How important is it to sign up for meals under the registration?
Extremely! Any day that you are planning on attending and eating the meal(s) offered please check the box under Items for sale. If you are registered for that day no charge will be added to registration but it is vital to the program committee when giving an accurate head count to the Hilton. Keeping meal costs down keeps YOUR registration costs down!

The theme for the 2020 Conference celebration dinner is Halloween party.

Yes, attendees must have on their name badge to enter conference events.

Yes, you can bring a guest; there is a guest fee and they must wear their guest badge to attend any event during the conference, i.e. meals, vendor hall, celebration party, etc.

The intent of the guest fee is to primarily help cover the meals for the guest (breakfast each morning, Wednesday evening celebration dinner, Thursday lunch with the vendors). Guests are not allowed in the lecture halls, and no CRCE will be awarded to guests.

Generally speaking, yes; refunds are handled on a case by case basis. There is a $10 non-refundable processing fee included in each registration fee.

Given the number of tasks that the program committee has to carry out, we ask that everyone respect the scheduled times for registration/check in at the conference. There will be signs on the doors to the conference center indicating the times that registration will open each day.

No, we will not accept personal checks at the door.

Things to Consider

We do encourage early registration when at all possible. There are preparations for each attendee that are made ahead of time that makes the registration process easier. Please note that, as the year progresses, the conference fees will increase.

RC Instructors: if at all possible, please have your students register early. If you would like to “bulk register” them as a group, please provide the following information: Name, mailing address, phone number, e-mail address, AARC number, name of school student is attending. This information can be sent to program@scsrc.org. On line student registration will close on August 21, 2020; the program committee has to complete “head counts” for meals and turn in this information to the hotel ahead of time.
