Chairman R. Thornwell Dunlap, III invites you to join him at the 2018 SCBA Annual Convention on Sunday through Wednesday, June 10-13, 2018. The 118th Annual Convention will take place at The Cloister at Sea Island. Of special note is the SCBA will be at Sea Island as it celebrates its 90th anniversary. Consistently rated as one of the top resorts in the world, Sea Island provides luxurious guest experiences along the Golden Isles of Georgia. At Sea Island, beauty and distinction come in several award-winning choices. Glide through salt marshes. Feel the wind on your face and the wisps of tidal grasses through your fingers. Count sea turtle nests, go paddle boarding, hit a clay target or go fishing and the catch of the day could be yours.

This spectacular seaside resort will be the perfect venue for SCBA’s line-up of speakers, vendors and enlightening business sessions. The program will have two full days of educational opportunities for bankers, directors and associate members. The SCBA has rooms blocked at The Cloister and at The Beach Club. For your convenience, our nightly hotel rates are $405 at The Cloister and $425 at The Beach Club plus tax and resort fees. Our special SCBA rate will be extended to our registrants three days before and after the convention should you choose to linger and enjoy the surf and sand. Please note, should you plan to arrive at Sea Island early or leave late, there are a very limited number of rooms available at the convention rate, especially in the Beach Club Rooms, and are on a first-come, first-served basis. Don’t delay! Convention fees are $545 for members/associates, $425 for spouses/ guests and $155 for children.

Please join Chairman Dunlap at Sea Island where comfort is in every detail and genuine southern charm is in the air. Come help him celebrate the 90th anniversary of Sea Island by attending the 2018 SCBA Convention!
