SCEDA is excited to host our upcoming Annual Conference on June 8-10 at the Myrtle Beach Marriott!   Your Annual Conference committee has spent the past several months planning fun entertainment for Wednesday and Thursday nights.  SCEDA conferences are an opportunity for our membership to network together, and we do not want any of our members to feel excluded.

We ask you to please support SCEDA  by not hosting private dinner parties during our planned events.  Our goal is for all of us to be together during the conference and to especially include all of our new members in the fun.  Thank you for your support and cooperation, and we look forward to seeing you there!
