    25th Annual Conference Cancellation

    Aug. 5, 2020

    It is with great disappointment that I write to let you know that the 2020 SCPRA Annual Conference scheduled for October 2020 has been cancelled.

    Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the health and safety of our membership have been primarily on the Board’s mind. We had some workshops and networking luncheons that were planned or were in the making for March, but I requested they be cancelled until a later date.

    The SCPRA Board of Directors have been closely monitoring the situation regarding COVID-19 and at a virtual Board Meeting in March via zoom, we came to the decision that it would be in the best interest of our Association to cancel the 2020 Annual Conference. Not knowing how long this pandemic will last, and what is expected of us afterwards work wise, we felt it best to postpone the Conference until 2021.

    The Conference Planning Committee has worked hard to provide you an improved conference from previous years. However, cancellation is the right decision. I have contacted all of our speakers and they are all willing to speak at next year’s conference barring any unforeseen changes to their schedules.

    In the meantime, I would like you to think outside the box. If you still are interested in putting on a records management related workshop or other type of meeting for your region, conduct it using a virtual meeting software such as ZOOM, Microsoft Teams, or GO-TO-MEETING. Do not forget to send me an invite so that we can promote it on the website!

    Speaking of website, your Board is hard at work designing a fresh look for the website with additional functionality that should make your experience on the website much smoother.

    Thank you for your support and understanding as we do our best in keeping our SCPRA members safe and healthy.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me at (803) 785-6245.
