Chapter Information

South Carolina Chapter (est. 2003)

Our chapter represents Case Management professionals who reside and/or work in the state of South Carolina.

Chapter Dues: NO chapter dues are required in addition to national dues for chapter membership.

By joining the South Carolina Chapter of the ACMA, you gain access to a collaborative network of individuals who are dedicated to the advancement of hospital/health system case management.

The SC chapter sponsors two key educational events annually, a spring and fall conference to discuss the many challenges and opportunities facing our state and hospital-based case management.
