Annual Symposium Virtual CE Series

With the health and safety of Annual Symposium attendees, exhibitors, sponsors and speakers a top priority – as well as slowing the spread of COVID-19 – South Carolina Association of Health Underwriters has made the decision to transform the 2020 Annual Symposium into a Virtual CE Series.

 

The Annual Symposium Virtual CE Series will be a five-part series offered in August 2020.

Attendees who have previously registered and paid to attend the Annual Symposium are eligible to attend all virtual continuing education sessions free of charge. You will receive an email confirmation for each webinar and do not have to register. Alternatively, you may request a refund from SCAHU if you prefer not to participate in the Annual Symposium Virtual CE Series or we can move your registration to the 2021 Symposium on April 1, 2021.

Members who have not already paid to attend the Annual Symposium may register for one, some or all of the five virtual CE sessions for $20/session. Non-members can register for $50/session.

In order to receive CE credit from SC Department of Insurance, you must attend on the scheduled date. Sessions will be recorded for those who are unable to attend at the date/time they are offered but this method would not qualify for CE credit.

Paid exhibitors will be issued a refund or a credit applied to the 2021 Symposium. Sponsors may request a refund or the opportunity to speak at the beginning of a virtual CE session.
