SCHC Announces Virtual Meeting and Annual Survey

Dear Colleagues,

At the start of this year no one would have predicted that the world would have gone through such a dramatic upheaval, or how the HazCom field would be impacted. As we work in an ever-changing landscape, we recognize the importance of continuing our plans to host the SCHC Fall Meeting. It gives us a time to collectively grow and learn so that we all can be up-to-date and using best practices.

While our SCHC teams have been working diligently to plan the Fall event, we now know that this will be a virtual experience, accessible to attendees around the globe, and it will focus on:

  • providing exceptional professional development opportunities,
  • sharing insights from leading experts about the changing regulatory landscape, and
  • enhancing our connections as SCHC members and HazCom leaders.

We are thrilled that our volunteer-lead organization is coming together to assemble a comprehensive virtual experience and, as we work through the various aspects, we will be sharing announcements and updating the SCHC website and social media. It has been far too long since we’ve enjoyed each other’s company, and we can’t wait to share more news of this event.

In making our plans, we want to hear from you about what you would most like to see in our first-ever virtual meeting. We ask that you complete the annual SCHC survey at your earliest convenience to provide your input. Responses are due by July 31.  You can begin the survey now by using this link. The information that you share in this survey will make a difference in the Fall event and in future SCHC experiences.

For some who have attended portions of meetings virtually in the past and for first-time virtual attendees, you will be pleased to know that this experience will go beyond what was previously done.  For this event, we look forward to maximizing our time together, with opportunities to engage with other members, sponsors, vendors, and, of course, industry-leading lecturers and speakers. Registration details and sponsorship and marketing opportunities will be shared in the near future.

We are looking forward to developing the best fall program with your help, and we can’t wait to reconnect with everyone in a meaningful and fun way. Having our membership join together as a community will achieve so much for all of us, personally, professionally, and as a society. 

Stay safe and well!
