to the South Carolina Workers' Compensation Educational Association's website. I would like to begin by saying that it is an honor to serve as your President. I am grateful to all of the individuals in this organization who continue to work, devote their time, and lend to the vision to make the SCWCEA the strong, successful association it is today.  The Board and staff hope your plans include participation in our many educational programs.


The nature of handling workers' compensation cases is changing for all of us. The nature of teaching and learning is evolving. Society itself is changing at an unprecedented rate.   It's hard to predict what effect these changes will have on our futures.


Now more than ever, it is time to be innovative.  We need to do it better, quicker and in a more cost-effective manner.  The SCWCEA will continue to educate workers' comp professionals for challenges we are experiencing and to prepare for those  we don't know exist yet.  It is vital that as this new normal unfolds, we work together more effectively, share insights more broadly, and face our challenges more cohesively.  By doing this, we will be better able to serve our clients with relevant knowledge and treatments that improve their lives.


We hope you will make plans to be with us throughout 2021.   Our Medical Seminar was held February 28 - March 2, 2021 using a virtual platform.  The One Day Seminar committee met this and determined it would not be financially feasible to hold our 2021 One Day Seminar.  We are happy to announce that our Annual Educational Conference on Workers' Compensation will be an in-person event, October 3 - 6 at the beautiful Marriott Resort & Spa at Grande Dunes in Myrtle Beach.  The theme for this year's meeting is Together Again and we are excited to see each of you in person in a few short months.   We encourage you to continue to remain active with the SCWCEA and participate in our programs.

Donna Croom, our Executive Director, is available to address any questions or concerns about membership, costs, registration, credits and more.


I look forward to hearing from the membership and seeing you all at future programs.  Please stay safe and be well.


Best Regards,


Steven A. Yuhas
