    Due to the impending arrival of Hurricane Irma and the safety concerns associated with the storm, the Kingston Plantation is not able to accommodate the Carolinas EIA 2017 Fall Seminar in Myrtle Beach next week. We will not be holding the Carolinas EIA 2017 Fall Seminar over the dates of September 13-15.
    As soon as the storm has passed and the condition of the property has been assessed, we will determine dates for a reschedule of the seminar. It is the desire of the Carolinas Chapter of EIA to reschedule the 2017 Fall Seminar some time during the 4th Quarter of this year. We will hold all payments that have been made for this conference until a new conference date has been selected.  At that time, we will address all payment issues and we will issue refunds to any attendees and exhibitors that might not be able to accommodate the date change.  
    Thank you for your patience in this matter and we hope everyone will stay safe during this storm!

    The Carolinas EIA Chapter is proud to announce the 27th Annual Conference will be held September 13 - 15, 2017, at the Kingston Plantation, Myrtle Beach, SC!

    This outstanding annual Conference will include a day and half technical program with viewpoints from various disciplines – contractors, consultants, laboratories, attorneys, regulators building owners and property managers. Attendees are eligible for continuing education points from organizations such as ACAC and ABIH.

    Outstanding education, networking, exhibitors, all in beautiful Myrtle Beach…one of the best vacation destinations in the US.

    Keynote Presentation, The Essential Why, by David Branch, Jr., Branch Environmental/Branch Solutions Group
    In business we are taught that to capitalize in our market we must fully understand our “why's:"
    1. Why do our customers buy from us?
    2. Why do our employees choose to work with us?
    3. Why do we choose to serve others in our business in the first place?
    It is our belief in our “why” that determines the quality of our relationships, our finances and our health. In order to get the most out of life and become a more effective leader, we must understand our “why," which will drive our actions and ultimately determine our greatest success or our failures in business and life.
    This presentation will inspire entrepreneurs to live a richer and more fulfilling life and to better utilize their influence as a leader to make a positive impact in their businesses, their families and their communities.
