SCMA Members:

Your Board of Directors has planned several events for this fall that we hope you’ll enjoy and join us for them.

September 10-11 – Summer Education Conference where we’ll return to Litchfield Beach & Golf Resort. The agenda will follow up on the regulatory processes that scare us all from the 2012 annual meeting. We will have the SC OSHA folks joining us as well as the federal side. John McKnight from NMMA will let us know what we have coming down the road from Washington while Anna Townsend, editor for Marina DockAge will give us her take on how our industry is coping. Scout Boats is the presenting sponsor. The cost will be $100 for members; $140 for non-members; and $200 for exhibitors.

October 19 – The 5th Annual Nautical Marketplace will be hosted by St. Johns Yacht Harbor on Johns Island. We hope this will also be a mini-Discover Boating’s Welcome to the Water. Keep an eye on www.scmanauticalmarketplace.org site for more developments.

December 9-10 – New this year for our annual meeting, we will be partnering with the MRAA to bring their Marine Retail University to Charleston on the 9th then have our annual meeting and holiday luncheon on the 10th. More details will be coming on these.

A big thank you goes out to all our members who volunteered either their time, equipment or expertise during the spring in-water boat show at Daniel Island.
