SCAC's Annual Conference and Institute of Government
Each year, SCAC's Annual Conference provides a dynamic educational experience with opportunities for one-on-one interaction, strategizing, small group discussions and large group learning. More than 600 county officials—representing South Carolina's 46 counties—gather to discuss challenges and opportunities, share best practices and attend training sessions that strengthen their capacity to lead and serve.
In addition to an energizing educational program, the meeting offers opportunities to learn more about SCAC's programs and services, and to network with exhibitors and colleagues. Many of the state's top county leaders are also honored with awards and training certificates.
The Institute of Government for County Officials (the Institute) is a training program designed to equip county officials with the tools needed to enhance their skills and abilities to function more effectively in their positions. SCAC provides the Institute in cooperation with the Joseph P. Riley Jr. Center for Livable Communities at the College of Charleston. Clemson University’s Master of Public Administration Program is a sponsor of the Institute.
First offered in 1989, the Institute curriculum has been enhanced over the years to reflect current information that county officials need to know in order to be effective leaders.
