CHARLESTON, SC | JUNE 23-26, 2021
The all new SCL Annual Conference
In 2020, the pandemic forced us to pivot to an all-virtual conference. This was met with astounding success, as triple the number of guests joined us online from around the world. This year, the SCL plans to build on last year’s success by creating an all-new experience for our attendees, both online and in-person.
Three Options to Attend...
Together again. Join us in Charleston and be equipped and refreshed! After 2020, this time of fellowship should be particularly meaningful.

Building off of last year’s success, this year we plan to add even more engaging features for those attending online.
🢚 COVID-19 Information 🢘
We are excited to offer three conference options this year, accommodating ways for everyone to access our annual summer conference. After last year’s hiatus, we are glad to be gathering in person again in beautiful Charleston, SC!
We realize Covid is a serious concern for many – a benefit of the three attendance options. For those in person in Charleston, the conference will function as traditionally as possible. We do request attendees adhere to the local Charleston ordinances regarding masks, distancing, etc., though we will leave the enforcement of hotel policies and local ordinances to hotel staff.
From Francis Marion: Hotel Guidelines (updated May 1, 2021)
As of this point, we are still requiring masks while guests move about and are in all public areas of the hotel. However, we are allowing guests to meet with masks off once they are seated and eating/drinking. As the vaccinations continue to roll-out, we are certainly feeling more comfortable allowing higher numbers of guests to congregate. We will still have our air purifiers located throughout, along with hand sanitizer stations.
Regional Host Location Guidelines
Any mask or social distancing requirements at our regional host locations will remain at the discretion of host school leaders who will be well familiar with local ordinances. Please be prepared to respect the requests of the regional host.
Responses to COVID changes and regulations can be unpredictable. Of course, we will adapt as necessary.

The SCL is working diligently and creatively to create a unique experience for our attendees in Charleston, SC. Please explore the links below to learn more about Charleston and the historic Francis Marion Hotel.
Charleston, the South Carolina port city, founded in 1670, is defined by its cobblestone streets, horse-drawn carriages, excellent dining, and pastel antebellum houses, particularly in the elegant French Quarter and Battery districts. The Battery promenade and Waterfront Park both overlook Charleston Harbor, while Fort Sumter, a federal stronghold where the first shots of the Civil War rang out, lies across the water.
ABOUT THE FRANCIS MARION
Dating from 1924, this sophisticated hotel is opposite Marion Square. It’s also 15 minutes’ walk from both the South Carolina Aquarium and the historic City Market.
Traditionally decorated rooms come with all the amenities of a fine three-star hotel.
Additionally, the Francis Marion has a Southern-style restaurant/bar, which offers regular, live jazz music. Other amenities include a spa, an exercise room and a Starbucks coffee shop.
