Date set for May 14; Annual meeting details falling into place
New location; new logistics
As soon as the location of our 2013 Annual Meeting was determined, we began working on the details. The first step was informing members about the new venue. We did that in the July edition of South Carolina Living.
When we made the announcement, we also made a commitment to keep members updated as decisions are made and plans are put in place.
Establishing a parking plan; figuring out how members would get to and from the Convocation Center and traffic logisitics were high on our list of planning priorities. After much discussion and consultation with groups that typically handle these types of logistics for large groups at locations similar to CCU, a team of employees developed and then proposed to the board of trustees a plan. It includes long-term parking with round-trip shuttle service to and from the convocation center; short term parking within easy walking distance of the building and handicap parking right next to the building. Only vehicles with a placard displayed will be permitted in the handicap parking area. The plan was reviewed and approved by the board of trustees.
Registration gift increase
Only members who register, in person, to participate in the Annual Meeting of Members between the hours of noon and 7 p.m. on May 14 are eligible to receive the Registration Gift. As it has been for the past few years, the Registration Gift will be an electric bill credit. For 2013, however, the board of trustees has decided to increase the amount from $15 to $25.
Business as usual
The agenda for the business portion of the Annual Meeting will run the same as it has in the past. Registration and voting will take place between the hours of noon and 7 p.m. The business meeting will begin promptly at 7 p.m. and, once it adjourns, we will begin the prize drawing.
