    As we move into the second day of the conference, we would like to acknowledge that Hurricane Michael's impact has been felt far and wide within our region; for some it affected travel plans, for others, it impacted you and your families in ways that may take time to recover.  Our hearts go out to those impacted and we hope that in the coming days those affected are able to  restore their sense of peace and stability.

    For those of you who were able to join us at the conference, we appreciate you making the journey to get here and hope your conference experience will be enriching and invigorating. Although we experienced some cancellations, we were also able to move some sessions to a later time so that presenters could still provide these sessions to you. Therefore, please check the updated conference app or view the bulletin board near the registration desk for a list of changed and/or cancelled sessions.  In addition to a series of great sessions throughout the day, we hope you will join us for the Business Meeting and Awards Luncheon at noon in the Palisades Ballroom. We also have a fun reception planned tonight on the pool deck overlooking the beach and look forward to seeing you there.

    Good afternoon,

    As many of you have seen, Hurricane Michael is approaching the Florida panhandle and may impact travel plans for some of you. We are monitoring the storm and the potential impact on the conference. As of now, Myrtle Beach is only anticipating rain so there appears to be no issues for the Hilton; therefore, we intend to continue with the conference plans as scheduled.

    We trust that you will make the decision that is in your personal and professional best interests with regards to traveling or cancelling your registration. If you wish to travel ahead of the storm, the Hilton will honor the same conference hotel rate for arriving early; you can contact hotel reservations and adjust your stay accordingly.

    If you wish to cancel your registration, please refer to the refund policy on our conference website. We are not able to deviate from the refund policy due to the commitment of extensive financial resources.  

    You can contact the Registration Coordinators at SACESreg2018@gmail.com to cancel your registration.  If you also need to cancel your presentation, please copy SACESconference2018@gmail.com as well. 

    The conference app will be continually updated with session cancellations throughout the conference.

    We will keep you updated as more information becomes available about the potential impact of the storm on the conference. We wish you safe travels and look forward to seeing you in Myrtle Beach!

    We are only a week away from oceanfront views, great networking opportunities, and intellectually stimulating conference sessions!  As you finalize your trip plans we would like to share a few reminders and information that should enhance your conference experience.


    • If you are flying in after 9pm we encourage you to set up ground transportation prior to getting to Myrtle Beach, it is a small airport so transport from the airport can be limited.  We have identified two Taxi Drivers who we used in our site visits that are available during these evening hours:
      • Big Mike 423-817-2659
      • Stilian Baku 843-424-1312
    • If you are driving, you may wish to view the SCDOT website for current road closures and delays in South Carolina before you leave.

     Conference Information

    I would like to thank our conference committee and volunteers for all the work that has gone into preparing for this conference. I am also thankful to our SACES Conference 2018 sponsors; please be sure to check out their ads or stop by their exhibit booths.

    We look forward to seeing you in two weeks for the SACES conference. As you are putting your travel plans in place to join us in Myrtle Beach, please consider that while many of the main highways are clear, the secondary roads may still be experiencing some flooding and may be closed. We hope that the rivers recede and the roads reopen before the conference; however, we ask that you take the time to identify closed secondary roads before you leave your home if you are driving; you can view the SCDOT website for current road closures in South Carolina. For those flying in, the roads from the Myrtle Beach airport to the Hilton Resort and the surrounding area are open and not experiencing flooding. We will update you again before you leave for the conference if this has changed.

    Please be safe in your travels and we hope to see you soon.

    Attention SACES Members!

    The conference hotel and Myrtle Beach surrounding areas were not significantly impacted by Hurricane Florence.  However, our thoughts are still with members who are residents of North Carolina, as we know many are still experiencing significant challenges.  I hope to see many of you next month in Myrtle Beach.
