SCTPA is excited about our 20th Annual Meeting to be held February 8– 10, 2019 at the DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Myrtle Beach Oceanfront, 3200 South Ocean Boulevard, Myrtle Beach, SC.
Our 2018 meeting had a large attendance of over 425 people. We are excited to be returning to the DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Myrtle Beach Oceanfront for our 2019 venue.
Our meeting focus will look at issues in the Trucking and Wood Hauling. Our theme will be very simple… Happy 20th Anniversary!
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: Rick Shell, Pre-Trip, LLC. Rick is a former SC State Transport Police Captain and was in charge of statewide enforcement. He will present his Trucking Audit 101 – What You Need to Know If Audited by SCSTP or USDOT. Robert Crenshaw, Area Director with ReadySC and Apprenticeship Carolina will discuss the New Logger Apprenticeship Program for high school juniors and seniors and adults started in Aiken County with Beech Island Timber & Construction, Inc.
We’ll also hear at our Saturday luncheon from two speakers. SC Secretary of Transportation Christy Hall of SC Department of Transportation (or her top staffer) about how SCDOT is improving the safety, road conditions and bridges in SC. Carlton Owen, President of the U.S. Endowment for Forestry & Rural Communities will discuss the Endowment and the Real Time Truck Turn Time Pilot Project underway with SCTPA and The Worthwhile Company for loggers and drivers to have an “App” on their computer and/or cell phone to see what the real time truck turn times are at mills in SC.
Saturday’s association business session will feature the association’s 2018 financials, Board of Directors elections, any bylaws changes, awards and presentations. We’ll also have our prize drawings for the Honda Rubicon ATV, Honda Generator and free stay at DoubleTree by Hilton Resort Myrtle Beach Oceanfront. Saturday evening is free to enjoy Myrtle Beach.

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.
