Welcome to the Holy City!

The largest chapter in the ASAC to date, the Charleston Chapter meets monthly at the Town & Country Inn at 2008 Savannah Hwy, Charleston, SC 29407. Typically, meetings start at 6:00PM

Join us to network with fellow sub-contractors in the area and learn more about the latest issues that impact your company growth. Each meeting will include networking, dinner, and a featured speaker. Speaker topics include market trends, business professional development, and ongoing legislative issues. Recent topics included tax reform, silica law changes, and the I-526 corridor improvement project.

Our goal at ASAC is to provide you with the best resources to help your business prosper.

Members and non-members are welcome!

In addition, the Charleston chapter organizes monthly social networking events for members and non-members. We like to combine fun local activities with our networking, such as our annual oyster roast, or a pub crawl, or skeet shooting event. Check the blog postings about these activities, as the registration fees for members vary from a typical monthly meeting fee.

Non-members can attend their first event for FREE! Click here to register online.

My wife and I had a great time at this year's convention. The venue was excellent and the networking and social events were great. We will be there in Asheville next year

I loved the venue at the Embassy Suites. Great location and the banquet facilities were great. Great programs on Friday and Sat as well. Hospitality room was awesome and in a perfect location. Brew Tour was fun (but a little long) and golf course was awesome. Roof Top bar was really cool but closed too early. Ha.

April 23, 2018 – Monthly Meeting -For the monthly meeting we learned about the latest tax reform in a presentation by Sarah Windham, CPA, Dixon Hughes Goodman. Open bar and dinner was served. It was a great time to socialize beforehand while getting the highpoints of an otherwise daunting tax reform.

February, 16th, 2018 – Annual Oyster Roast on Truluck Island - Only in Charleston could you have weather like this! The weather was mild, but the drinks were cold. One of the largest turnouts since the inception of the event, this year’s oyster roast was both a chance to enjoy great steamed oysters and a great opportunity to socialize and have fun. Thanks to everyone who attended. Let’s see if next year is even bigger!
