The South Carolina State Society, Inc. of Washington, DC is a nonprofit section 501(c)(7) organization and a member of the National Conference of State Societies. The South Carolina State Society (SCSS) serves an essential role, connecting South Carolinians in the nation’s Capital and surrounding areas. We are an active state society that currently serves over 300 members who are living and working in the Washington, DC area. Our members hold a variety of positions in Congressional offices, Executive branch agencies, trade organizations, non-profit organizations, and the private sector.

Two of the primary goals for this year are to expand our membership base and the number of events that are offered to our membership in 2019. We are excited about recruiting new members to SCSS and have planned several new events throughout the year that will allow them to reconnect with old friends, network professionally and volunteer with fellow South Carolina natives.
