Spring Meeting 2014: Charleston


January 22-26, 2014


The South Carolina Chapter and the Planning Committee for the 2014 Southern Division AFS Spring Meeting would like to invite you to historic Charleston, South Carolina for the Spring Meeting in 2014.

The host hotel for the meeting is the Francis Marion Hotel, located in the middle of Charleston’s historic district and within walking distance of a wide choice of restaurants and all major attractions, such as the historic waterfront, the maritime center, and the South Carolina Aquarium.

The culture and history of Charleston provide an amazing diversity of attractions for all interests. In the Charleston area, history is not just a plaque on a landmark; it is a sense of place and a connection to the past. It is apparent in traditions, graces the facades of homes, punctuates the vernacular, and seasons the food. While the Charleston area is indeed a veritable living museum, it is also a bustling epicenter of culture, invigorating outdoor activity, and great dining that welcomes close to four million visitors annually.


So please, plan to spend a few extra days in the area.

Save the date and experience our Lowcountry hospitality.


Shane Boring, General Meeting Chairman

Marcel Reichert, Local Arrangements Chair
