SC Healthcare Human Resources Association (SCHHRA)

With all the challenges in health care, 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 2018:

  • 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.


 Tri-State HR Conference: August 29 - August 31, 2018 at The Marriott Myrtle Beach Resort & Spa at Grande Dunes
