Our Annual Training 2021 is scheduled on September 27-28, 2021. This two-day event is your chance to hear from speakers from all over the state about various topics that can help you better serve your clients while also connecting you to other professionals from all over South Carolina. 

We have watched COVID-19 cases and the Delta variant change the ways we are gathering, working, and learning once again. We recognize that any gathering has the potential to impact our communities and the people we serve. At this time, we are choosing to make the difficult decision to serve our attendees and our state as best we can and move Annual Training 2021 to a completely virtual event.

During our virtual conference, you will have access to each sponsor, speaker, session and networking opportunity. We are excited to be able to offer this immersive experience to the people who serve our state in many different capacities.

Session & Track Details

Opening Session:

Looking Back So We Can See Forward: Social Determinants of Health and Wealth | Paula D. Cunningham, AARP Michigan

This keynote will address disparities that racial and ethnic minority populations have experienced during this pandemic more than other populations. This keynote address will explore the origin of these disparities. Why do these disparities still exist today? Are they self-inflicted or systemic? Most importantly, how do we work together to eliminate perpetuating them into the future?

Closing Session:

The Leadership Lens | Patrick Jinks, The Jinks Perspective

Leading social change is hard and stressful. In this session, we will laugh, dream, and challenge ourselves together as we change lenses with award-winning professional photographer and certified leadership coach Patrick Jinks. See the bigger picture while you embrace the details. Hone your own leadership skills and shine the light for others to find theirs. Conquer your fear of the unknown, and rediscover the joy of leadership. Don’t miss this closing keynote!
