FROM THE PRESIDENT
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. We plan to hold steady with virtual meetings for now, and with hybrid meetings likely to follow. Our Medical Seminar will be held February 28 - March 2, 2021 using a virtual platform. The One Day Seminar committee will meet this Spring to determine if it is safe to move to a hybrid method now that vaccines have arrived. Our hopes are rising not only for better days ahead but for a possible in-person conference this fall in Myrtle Beach, October 3 - 6. 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.
