Kuhar, Esq., Benesch, Friedlander, Coplan & Aronoff LLP

Owners Roundtable

Our third Owners Roundtable is an interactive and engaging forum allowing owners the opportunity to share with each other concerns and ideas that affect us all. Your thoughts and concerns for your business are important for all of our businesses.

  • Succession Planning
  • As an association, why can’t we stand united on contractual issues?
  • Labor Challenges
  • Certification of Operators

Facilitated by Rick Kalson, ESQ., Benesch Attorneys at Law, and Bo Walker, Texas Shafts, this session will include open dialog from principals of construction companies whose opinions help assure that everything is considered when important decisions are made within the association.

ADSC GOLF TOURNAMENT, PORT ROYAL GOLF CLUB
The Barony Course was designed by George W. Cobb in the early 1960s and was one of the first courses on Hilton Head Island. From the tee box, many of the holes appear to be relatively open, but as you approach the newly resurfaced Bermuda greens, the real challenge becomes clear. The greens are generous and protected by thick, rough and unforgiving bunkers, entitling the golfer to have good touch with mid- to short-range iron shots. This is a course where accuracy, not length, is paramount. Joining us for this event is World Long Drive Runner-Up Justin Moose for a demonstration beginning at 7:45am. *Additional Fee Required

WELCOME RECEPTION
Begin the week by greeting old friends and meeting new ones during the Welcome Reception on the Ocean Front Deck. Stop by for cocktails and light hors d’oeuvres before heading to your dinner reservations with colleagues and friends!

DOLPHIN TOUR
*The conference schedule has been designed so that all attendees can take part in this tour. There are no meeting conflicts with the tour time. Take in the sights and sounds of the beautiful South Carolina low country on this relaxing boat cruise. Depart from Shelter Cove Marina for a casual exploration of the picturesque Broad Creek and surrounding waterways in search of some this area’s most fascinating wildlife. There is something special to see at every turn. The tidal creeks offer great opportunities to see local and migratory dolphin populations. Distinctive behaviors of the local dolphin are so fascinating that researchers and scientists have sought out this locale for years. Herons, ibis, wood stork, bald eagle and osprey dot the landscape. This tour is led by a USCG licensed Captain. *Additional Fee Required
