This fall, beautiful Myrtle Beach, S.C., will play host to the State Guard Association of the United States’ (SGAUS) annual conference. And all state defense force (SDF) members and their families, nationwide, are urged to join us at this popular annual event on the South Carolina coast, Sept. 21-24.
While official on-line registration will not open until July 1st, you’ll want to SAVE THE DATE and make plans to be a part of this year’s exciting conference.
“South Carolina is honored to host this year’s convention,” says MG Tom Mullikin, commander of the S.C. State Guard and pres. of SGAUS. “This is going to be a fun and exciting event for the entire family.”
Myrtle Beach consistently ranks as one of the top family vacation destinations in the country. There is simply so much to do and see in Myrtle Beach, including the 60 miles of pristine sandy beaches (nicknamed the “Grand Strand”). The area also boasts of a variety of award-winning music, dance, comedy, dinner shows and celebrity concert; not to mention over 100 quality golf courses many of which were designed by some of the legends of the game. You can explore all the experiences Myrtle Beach offers or just stay on site at the beautiful ocean front Embassy Suites resort at Kingston Plantation.
There will be top notch guest speakers, this year, as well as specialized training for all SDF members. And conference participants do not have to be members of SGAUS in order to attend.
