SCDWC Hosts National Federation of Democratic Women in Charleston, SC


We in the SCDWC are so honored and excited to be hosting the National Federation’s Annual Convention in South Carolina June 9-12, 2016 at the beautiful Francis Marion hotel in downtown Charleston. Our convention’s theme this year is “Making Her Story History, Celebrating 45 years of Democratic Women in Politics”.

Calling all South Carolina Democratic women to attend. Three days of fabulous Democratic speakers (Rep. Jim Clyburn, Rep. Marlon Kimpson, and Rep. Mary Tinkler to name a few), the opportunity to network with Democratic women from around the country, to make new friends and renew old friendships, and of course to enjoy Charleston in all its glory –food, fun, shopping. Ya’ll gotta come!

You may attend for a day, or two, or for the entire weekend. We also need your help volunteering. There’s lots to do to welcome our guests to the Holy City.
