This year's SCEDA Annual Conference planning committee has planned an educational and exciting conference program! Conference attendees will hear from Existing Industries as to why they choose to reinvest in South Carolina. Our Regional Alliance panel will cover why they are so valuable to our state and what is the future of Regional Alliances. The Media and Messaging 101 and How Leaders Create the Job they Love...Without Quitting are designed to help attendees become better employees while instilling skills they can utilize throughout their careers. We finish off the conference with a Federal Tax Update and how the affects are personal and professional.
Each year, SCEDA hosts over 325 industry professionals at the Annual Conference. This is the place to be if you are in economic development.
