***Annual Symposium Rescheduled due to COVID-19***

2020 Annual Symposium

June 17, 2020

USC Pastides Alumni Center
Columbia, SC  29201

SCAHU’s primary concern is for the health and well-being of its members and those who are participating in its Annual Symposium and Senior Market Summit, scheduled for later this month.

With this as our primary focus, the organization’s leadership has been meeting over the past few weeks to monitor the emerging and rapidly evolving situation with the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic. The leaders met today and decided to postpone the meeting until June 16-17, 2020, in our effort to keep everyone safeThe June meeting will be held at its original venue: University of South Carolina Alumni Center in Columbia. The Alumni Center has been great to work with, and its highest priority is also for everyone’s safety. June 16 will be the Senior Market Summit and the June 17 will be the SCAHU Annual Symposium.

We hope you will be able to join us for the June 16-17 event. If you are unable to attend and need to receive a refund please email karen@beaconamc.net and we will provide a full refund.

Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to seeing you June 16-17.
