SCSBA Board Training
ONE-DAY INTENSIVE: Bringing Civility to Verbal Conflict
October 19, 2023 | Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center

SCSBA in partnership with the Municipal Association of South Carolina (MASC) is excited to announce its first-ever joint training initiative focusing on civility in South Carolina board and council rooms. The one-day intensive training titled, “Bringing Civility to Verbal Conflict” will be held on Thursday, Oct. 19 at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center.

SCSBA and MASC welcome Harry P. Dolan, retired Chief of Police of the Raleigh, North Carolina Police Department to lead a session on verbal judo or the art of de-escalating, deflecting and redirecting volatile verbal encounters.

For SCSBA, this exciting joint venture replaces this year’s Beyond the Basics, which is typically held in October and focuses on a trending education topic.
