Conference Venue and Accommodations
The 2022 Annual Conference Hotel is Embassy Suites. The hotel is in the restored former Citadel Military College in the heart of downtown Charleston.

Several years later it became a tobacco warehouse, then served as the original Citadel Military College. Today, the Old Citadel still tells the story of gentility in the South with its extensive grounds, gracious lobby, grand atrium, and fountains.
The hotel is located across from Marion Square and less than a mile from Charleston City Market, the College of Charleston, and the South Carolina Aquarium. Walk to nearby local restaurants and enjoy our free made-to-order breakfast and complimentary evening reception.
