We learned a lot from our experience at the 2013 Annual Meeting of Members. Thankfully, we were able to quickly put a ‘Plan B’ into action to relieve the long lines and congestion caused by the large number of people who all showed up at the Annual Meeting of Members long before registration even began at noon.
This year, we’re making Plan B from last year our Plan A. We’re setting up multiple locations for registration/voting rather than limiting it to just one. All locations are accessible for members with personal wheelchairs, Segways or scooters. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide this type of equipment.
Designated parking for members with their Handicap placard displayed will be clearly marked in the parking lot registration/voting locations. There is Handicap parking already designated and marked around The HTC Center.
Convenient courtesy shuttles will be provided again this year, where necessary. The plan for the shuttles will be outlined in the May edition of South Carolina Living magazine.
Shuttles will run in a continuous loop from the multiple registration/voting locations to The HTC Center, which is where the entertainment, business meeting and prize drawing will take place. To make it easier for members to remember where they left their vehicle, each driver will be given a disposable bracelet, color coded specifically for the stop they boarded the shuttle.
