Many municipal job positions have specific training and networking needs, and the Municipal Association of South Carolina’s affiliate associations offer opportunities to meet those needs.
The SC Association of Municipal Power Systems focuses on legislative initiatives, mutual aid and provides training for elected officials, management staff and operational personnel of the electric cities in the state. Twenty of South Carolina’s municipal electric utilities are SCAMPS members. Originally, the organization existed solely for its members to help one another during times of disaster. Mutual aid remains the backbone of the organization even as its scope has grown to include training and advocacy.
SCAMPS offers an Annual Meeting for its members and a listserve for sharing best practices and connecting with colleagues around the state. Each spring, SCAMPS hosts a Lineman Training Competition.
