June 12-15
Westin Resort & Spa | Hilton Head, SC
Early Bird Registration Deadline: June 1

If you want to be part of the most fun, and fantastic meeting of the year, you are encouraged to register now for the (90th Anniversary!) SCTA Annual Meeting!

Surfing Waves of Upheaval is our theme, and that’s exactly what we will be taking a look at and talking about.

If it feels to you like it’s one big wave of upheaval after another, then you’re not alone. So don’t be!

We will cover in a fun, up-beat, and fast manner these upheavals in our business, our people, our technology, our economy, the nation’s politics, and the state of the world.
You will enjoy our format, speakers, Resort, experience – but mostly, our SCTA people.

This is a “must-attend” event for you and your key associates. It is also a well-deserved break from the grind.

Come to learn, laugh, live, and keep the legacy alive. See you in Hilton Head!
