SCTPA is excited about our 19th Annual Meeting to be held February 9 – 11, 2018 at the DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Myrtle Beach Oceanfront, 3200 South Ocean Boulevard, Myrtle Beach, SC.
Our 2017 meeting had a large attendance of over 400 people. We are excited to be returning to the DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Myrtle Beach Oceanfront for our 2018 venue.
Our meeting focus will look at issues in the Trucking and Wood Hauling. Our theme will be… Trucking Is THE Challenge Now!
Friday’s schedule will be a board of directors meeting, afternoon registration and evening welcome reception with food and entertainment. Friday’s Welcome Reception entertainment will feature the No Holds Barred Band-DJ-KJ Mix.
Saturday general session speakers will be Jimmie Locklear of Team Safe Trucking to update the committee’s progress addressing driver training and trucking issues. Dustin Meierhofer, Director Transportation, of the British Columbia Forest Safety Council will address trucking issues and what needs to be done to sustain the log trucking segment and the successes he has seen in Canada. Attorney Rob Moseley of Smith Moore Leatherwood will present the Do’s and Don’ts of what to do after a trucking accident.
We’ll also hear at our Saturday luncheon from D. K. Knight, Editor and publisher of Hatton-Brown Publishers about the status of the timber harvesting and log trucking industries.
Saturday’s association business session will feature the association’s 2017 financials, Board of Directors elections, any bylaws changes, awards and presentations. We’ll also have our prize drawings for the Honda Pioneer or ATV, Honda Generator and free stay at DoubleTree by Hilton Resort Myrtle Beach Oceanfront. Saturday evening is free to enjoy Myrtle Beach.
We’ll have the gospel group His Way Mine for our Sunday Prayer Breakfast to bless us with Southern Gospel music and faithful testimony.
Our Silent Auction will be available with a variety of nice items for bidding. Please donate an item. The prize drawings and silent auction help the association financially.
Exhibitors will be inside the conference center with their products and services. Outside exhibits of equipment, trucks, etc. will be in the parking lots. And of course there will be plenty of door prizes. We’ll draw a winner for a Very Special American Legacy Firearms Loggers Edition Henry Big Boy .44 MAG Brass Rifle engraved with logging scenes.
