SC Association for Community Economic Developers Hosts Opportunity SC: 2022

The South Carolina Association for Community Economic Development (SCACED) will host their annual conference, Opportunity SC: 2022, at the Hyatt Regency Greenville in downtown Greenville, SC from Wednesday, October 12 through Friday, October 14. Focusing on the theme "Build. Grow. Own.", this year's conference will include community tours, robust breakout sessions, preeminent keynote speakers, dinner and lunch receptions, and much more.

Dr. Tiffany Manuel, Ph.D., will serve as keynote speaker at the conference. DrT (as she prefers to be called) is a dynamic speaker, best-selling author and the President and CEO of TheCaseMade, an organization dedicated to helping leaders powerfully and intentionally make the case for systems change.

There will be three breakout session tracks for attendees to choose from. The “Build” breakout sessions will discuss affordable housing’s impact, retail inequality and food deserts, building diverse networks, and how to use civic engagement to enact change in communities. The “Grow” breakout sessions will cover rural entrepreneurship education, how to start and grow a home repair program, and how to use retail development to grow communities. The third track of sessions is presented by the South Carolina Community Capital Alliance (SCCCA), called “Own: Transforming Communities with Capital,” which will focus on how CDFIs can support small and minority businesses, close the equity gap, address childcare, and use data to define strategies.
