SC Healthcare Human Resources Association (SCHHRA)


With all the challenges in healthcare, Human Resource Professionals have a real opportunity to make an impact in our organizations and the communities we serve.  In that regard, we are fortunate to have the American Society of Healthcare Human Resources (ASHHRA), along with affiliated chapters at the state-level, including the South Carolina Healthcare Human Resources Association (SCHHRA) committed to enhancing the strategic role of HR.

The SCHHRA Board is committed to the following goals in 2014:

  • Provide opportunities for members to share best practices, innovative solutions and ways to achieve operational excellence via Annual Conference, three quarterly educational meetings at SCHA and regional meetings, as appropriate.
  • Partner with SCHA to promote participation in Legislative Initiatives that impact our industry, workforce and the patients we serve.
  • Promote Certification in Healthcare Human Resources and mentoring opportunities for those interested in our field.
  • Promote communication and collaboration within our membership, recognizing that together we can make a difference for the communities we serve.
  • Provide value to our members to help increase our membership ranks.

We are also excited about our joint NC/SC Conference this year, which will be held April 30-May 2 at Wild Dunes resort. We believe this will be an excellent opportunity to collaborate with colleagues and business partners as well as discuss cutting edge topics and learn from.
