26th Biennial Conference

The SCCBM is preparing for its 26th Biennial Conference scheduled for October 20, 2016 at the 200 Stoneridge Dr, Columbia, SC 29210.

This event brings together mayors from across the state along with constituents, public officials, community and corporate leaders to provide professional development and raise funds to support the SCCBM’s scholarship fund. Two $1,000 scholarships are awarded annually to two students who reside in communities where the mayor is a member of the South Carolina Conference of Black Mayors.

The theme for the 26th Biennial Conference is Health, Education and Public Safety. Please join us for 26th Biennial Conference.
