Countdown to the 2017 Annual Meeting

The 2017 Annual Meeting is just a week away, and it’s time to start thinking about how to get the most of out of your time at Hilton Head.

Read on for a sneak peek at a number of sessions that have been featured in recent Uptown stories.

Learning from other cities’ successes is a big part of the Annual Meeting. Greer Mayor Rick Danner shares his city’s story of working across jurisdictional lines to ensure success of several city projects. And Palmetto Pride shares how cities are working to put litter prevention strategies in place.

Crises come in all shapes and sizes. Hear from three city leaders who weathered recent storm incidents and find out some creative solutions to common problems they faced.

Law enforcement agencies are finding training through a simulator gives officers hands-on experience with situations encountered every day. Meeting attendees can attend a breakout session to learn about this training then give the simulator a first-person try

It’s not too early to start planning for the 2020 Census. Find out what cities need to be doing now to get ready.

Just because South Carolina hasn’t legalized medical marijuana doesn’t mean its use can’t be an issue for employers. A labor attorney will discuss this and other pressing HR issues.

Fifteen-minute tech talks on Thursday and Saturday give officials the chance to glance at trends and what’s new in technology for local governments.

Want the meeting in the palm of your hand? Download the meeting app before you leave home and get your schedule organized before you arrive at Hilton Head. 

New this year will be satellite parking at a church near the Palmetto Dunes entrance on the William Hilton Parkway for guests at the Sonesta, Hampton Inn and Holiday Inn Express. All the details on the website and the app

Finally, the 2017 Communications Survey will be available for everyone to complete at the Annual Meeting. Or get a jump on things and take the survey online now to tell us how you like to get information from the Association.
