Surveying and Mapping Society of Georgia and
South Carolina Society of Professional Land Surveyors
2013 Joint Summer Convention
July 18 - 20, 2013
Thanks to all of you who expressed an interest and encouraged us to include you, our Sustaining Members and Vendors, in our first ever Joint Convention of the South Carolina Society of Professional Land Surveyors and the Surveying and Mapping Society of Georgia! I hope you will be pleased with what we have planned and participate in every way you can.
We will kick-off our Convention with a Welcome Reception sponsored by you, our participating Exhibitors. This reception will be the first group event and allow Georgia and South Carolina members and attendees to socialize with each other and all of you. The reception will take place in the pre-function area with food, bar, and exhibits in the same place. All registered attendees will receive a t-shirt with every Exhibitor’s company name on the back and the Georgia/South Carolina Border and Joint Convention name on the front. I want to encourage you to give away a door prize at the reception Thursday evening; we will draw for the prizes at 6:45 pm and winner must be present to win. You will collect names and draw your own winner which will be announced at your booth by a convention leader or staff.
Friday, July 19th exhibits will be open during registration, continental breakfast, and breaks. Each exhibitor is invited to attend the Surveyors lunch at noon and will be given 3 to 4 minutes to address attendees. Exhibits will be removed beginning at 3:15 pm (after the last afternoon break). Friday evening dinner is on “your own” for all attendees however we are offering a dinner cruise option and invite you to attend with your clients and/or new friends!
Saturday evening you are invited to purchase a ticket and attend the Awards and Officer Installation Banquet. This evening begins with a cash bar and ends with a “not so silent auction” benefiting SAMPAC and SCSPLS Scholarship Fund…if you’ve never attended this event, you’re in for a treat!
We sincerely hope you can participate in some way and look forward to seeing you in July! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Ginger Walker, SAMSOG Executive Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 770-947-1767.
