We have discussed the safety protocols with the Hilton Kingston Plantation. The Hilton has been having meetings and have been keeping everything as clean as possible. Some of the protocols that will be in place are: temperature check before entering meetings, good social distancing, and mask wearing by all.

Friday and Saturday morning business meetings will entail a mask requirement and use of a bigger room to provide good social distancing.

The Friday night banquet will also be in a bigger room to provide good social distancing. There will still be a buffet but a Hilton worker will pick the food you want, plate it, and give you the plate at the end of the line.

The Golf outing will also follow social distancing and should not be a problem.

Hopefully the vaccinations will reduce the rates of COVID-19. We will be sending updates on rule changes within the State of South Carolina and COVID-19 over the next few months.
Friday Business Meeting
7:45 AM - Noon

We also will be having a Virtual meeting for the Friday morning business meeting. The cost for this will be $100 for one person and $300.00 for companies that want different departments or other locations to see this meeting. Virtual participants will be able to ask questions to panel also.
