SCTPA is excited about our 2023 Annual Meeting to be held February 24 – 26, 2023, at the DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Myrtle Beach Oceanfront, 3200 South Ocean Boulevard, Myrtle Beach, SC.
2022 has been a challenging year for the timber harvesting and timber supply segments with the increases in operating costs created by inflationary issues, high fuel prices, reduced trucking capacities and overall supply chain issues. Our Meeting Theme will be… Challenges Now and Into Our Future!
Our 2023 annual meeting will follow, if required, safety protocols of the resort, state and/or local governments. Social distancing and face shields will be recommended while attending the meeting, but will be personal preference. No virus protocols are in effect now.
Friday’s schedule will be a board of directors meeting, afternoon registration and evening welcome reception with food and entertainment. There’ll be a DJ and some Karaoke. We’ll have a LIVE AUCTION at the Friday Reception. The Live Auction will feature an Authenticated Autographed Taylor Swift Guitar Enclosed in a Beautiful Storage Case with Glass Top.
Saturday General Session speakers will be: Joe Conrad, Associate Professor of Forestry Operations, University of Georgia Warnell School of Forestry & Natural Resources: Todd Martin, President Southern loggers Cooperative; Toni McAllister, Executive Director Louisiana Loggers Association; Bob Lussier, President Team Safe Trucking; and Attorney Stephen Setliff, The Setliff Law Firm.
Saturday’s luncheon featured speakers will be: Minnesota Logger Peter Wood, Wood Forest Products and radio show host of Let the Sawdust Fly, Scott Dane, Executive Director of American Loggers Council and Rick Quagliaroli, Forestry Insurance Company of the Southeast.
Saturday’s association business session will feature the association’s 2022 financials, Board of Directors elections, any bylaws changes, awards and presentations. Drawings will be held for a nice rifle and shotgun and free stay at the DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Resort Myrtle Beach Oceanfront. Saturday evening is free to enjoy Myrtle Beach.
We’ll have the gospel group Port City Quartet for our Sunday Prayer Breakfast to bless us with their 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, live and silent auctions help the association financially. We encourage folks to contribute to the Silent Auction and Live Auction.
Exhibitors will be inside the conference center with their products and services. Outside exhibits of equipment, trucks, etc. will be in the parking lots.
Discounted Carolina Opry tickets for the Saturday evening show February 26th will be available for $ 37 each and can be ordered with your meeting registration. That’s a $16.00 per ticket savings versus regular price.
