Andy Barber President, HBA of South Carolina

First and foremost I want to thank everyone who attended the HBASC state convention and made it a great success, but especially our sponsors. Their support of the HBA allows us to invest in on our core issues that directly affect our industry. A list of the sponsors and their contacts are included in the magazine. Please reach out to them and thank them. Support those who support you!

One of the many benefits of the HBASC convention is the intensive continuing education courses available for the membership, which can be viewed at the web page, but I truly appreciated the time to meet with my peers. Many of my professional successes started from the time spent with peers across the state to share ideas and to meet new friends who have helped me build on my success. If you haven’t participated in the convention in the past I urge you to consider being part of it in 2020. You will find that it will afford you new business partnerships and opportunities that will affect your bottom line in a positive way. You may also take part in new activities like standing at a finish line and basking in the victory of your racing crab named Shell-Don!
