SCHC Annual Meeting Update - 2021

SCHC is pleased to announce that the 2021 Annual Meeting planning is well underway! With thoughts of safety and convenience for our attendees in mind, we will be hosting this as a virtual event in the first half of November, packed with innovative topics, access to industry leaders and policymakers, trade resources, and SCHC-exclusive events. It’s the perfect time to learn and network with fellow HazCom professionals.

Q: Why is the SCHC 2021 Annual Meeting not an in-person or hybrid event?
A: We would have loved to hold an in-person Annual Meeting in 2021. Planning started for the meeting with a focus on an in-person gathering. However, in the first few months of 2021 it became apparent that many SCHC members were unsure whether their companies would permit them to travel to an in-person conference. Decisions regarding our conference venue contract had to be made with the best available information. In the best interests of all of our members, we decided to hold the meeting virtually.  We are committee to holding an event with world-class programming and we hope you'll join us!

Be a part of the planning! We’re gathering input from meeting attendees, speakers, exhibitors, poster presenters and sponsors to develop this upcoming fall event. Members will soon receive the Annual Survey, which will play an integral part in planning the meeting agenda, professional development courses, special events, and more. 

BEWARE OF SCAMS.  SCHC has been alerted that our members are receiving calls about hotel bookings.  SCHC does not use an outside source to assist with hotel reservations. 

Thank you to those who filled out the survey after the fall 2020 meeting.  We rely on that feedback to learn from our mistakes and learn what is of interest to you for future presentation topics/courses.  It is never too late to offer your comments.  Feel free to send an email to [email protected] with any comments/questions/suggestions.

SCHC is pleased to present its Annual Meeting - 2021 virtually.  This virtual event will take course over five days and include plenary sessions, exhibits, poster session, sponsors, and networking that we all enjoy at the in-person meetings.  The meeting will be held on the same platform used last year (Pathable) with some changes to accommodate the suggestions of our members.  We will be adding some additional gaming options with more prizes!
