On behalf of the South Carolina Conference of Black Mayors (SCCBM), I welcome you to our official website.

In 1973, six Black Mayors founded the South Carolina Conference of Black Mayors. The founders saw a need for an organization to address the unique and challenging problems common to cities under black management. The South Carolina Conference of Black Mayors provides technical assistance and training to Black Mayors in regard to management and the operation of municipal government, economic development, and the delivery of municipal services. The organization provides an opportunity for Black Mayors to network and learn from each other’s experiences in managing towns and cities in South Carolina.

This year we invite you to join us for the 25th Biennial Meeting and Gala scheduled for October 17, 2014 in Lake City, South Carolina.

This event brings together mayors from across the state along with constituents, public officials, community and corporate leaders to celebrate the history and contributions of the SCCBM. The Gala will help raise funds to support the SCCBM’s scholarship fund. The South Carolina Conference of Black Mayors annually awards two students a scholarship. The students must reside in a town/city where the mayor is a member of the SCCBM.

We hope you will join us for this special occasion. Visit the website often to receive additional information.

Thank you for your support and commitment to the SCCBM.

William R. Johnson, SCCBM President
Mayor of Holly Hill
