The following is a short program of the all the presenters.  I was not sure if I was going to get much out of the conference.

Each presentation has been very educational.

If you are in a Risk Management position in South Carolina, it is worth the time and expense.    I will cover each presentation more in a future post.  I wish I could have made it to all the sessions.

The presentation on civility in the workplace was very good pure Risk Management.
