18th Annual HFTP Mid-South Atlantic Regional Conference

February 19 - 21 2025 at the
Francis Marion Hotel in Charleston, South Carolina


A joint effort by the HFTP Chapters in North & South Carolina and Virginia, the Mid-South Atlantic Regional Conference is held in an effort to bring together all the HFTP Professionals in the region for continuing professional education with time for socializing and getting to know each other better.

“You wanna be where everybody knows your name”

No, you’re not in Boston with Sam, Norm and Cliff; you are at the HFTP Mid-South Atlantic Regional Conference.  From its humble beginnings as the Blue Ridge Conference, the MSARC, as it is affectionately known, has become one of HFTP’s most successful Regional events.

The event is co-sponsored by the Charlotte-Blue Ridge, Central Carolina, Central Virginia and South Carolina Chapters of HFTP.  Each chapter hosts the conference in turn, allowing us to visit such wonderful places as the Grove Park Inn, Pinehurst Resort, Colonial Williamsburg and Historic Charleston, SC.

The MSARC is a hit with attendees because of the affordable cost and intimate nature of the conference.  The MSARC committees have done an excellent job through the years of providing excellent value for the investment.  We have become large enough to provide excellent educational opportunities but have remained small enough to avoid the larger “convention” hotels.  Join us and find out for yourself how walking into a room where “everybody knows your name” is so much better than being just another face in the crowd.

The MSARC has also become a must attend event for our Vendor-Sponsors.  With the platinum sponsorship at only $1,750, and 50 – 60 clubs, hotels and resorts represented, it is one of the most cost-effective conferences in the industry.  In addition to dedicated Sponsor Showcases, most beverage breaks, and social activities are located in the Sponsor area.  This allows the Sponsor and Attendee to interact in a more relaxed environment.

Find out for yourself why the Networking, Education and Sponsors make this conference second to none.  We promise, when you come back, we’ll know your name.
