The Hilton Head Ethics Society convenes on the first Wednesday of the months of October, November, February, March, April, and May, from 3:00 to 4:30, to address ethical issues of concern to our collective well-being. Each meeting features a presentation by a speaker on a topic selected in advance by the Board of the Society (see the meetings page on this website).
Our meetings are free-of-charge and are open to the public. Controversial issues involve conflicting ethical principles, so due regard is given to arguments for and against the issues discussed. When possible, following the speaker’s presentation a contrasting view is presented. In any case, a moderator directs the subsequent discussion and audience participation is encouraged.
For the entire 2020-2021 season, the Society held its meetings online, using the Zoom platform. With COVID-19 vaccination rates rising and the disease rates falling significantly in the county, we predict that we will be able to resume in-person meetings starting in October. We plan to meet as before, in the OLLI Room of USCB-Hilton Head, starting on October 6 from 3:00 to 4:30.
Please consult this website for any changes and for further information about the October session as the meeting date draws near. Or, if you prefer, contact us through the webpage and our Communications Chair, Director Gerry Schroeter, will add your email address to the list of possible attendees to be notified in advance of the meeting.

Our mission is to become better informed ethically and to engage in meaningful discussion about the many complex issues of our time.
