Southeastern States Conference Announces Changes for 2010 Event


COLUMBIA, S.C. — The Southeastern States Pupil Transportation Conference will hold a new one-day trade show this summer.

The change was approved by the SESPTC Board of Directors in Columbia, the site of its 60th annual conference held July 11-14. The SESPTC will also be held concurrently with the 2010 conference of the South Carolina Association for Pupil

Transportation conference. SESPTC President Leonard Swilley, the pupil transportation director for the state of Mississippi, said such partnerships make sense especially in the current economy.

SCAPT President Mike Bullman of the South Carolina Department of Education said the partnership presents a unique opportunity for state association members to have a regional conference experience in their own backyard.

The SESPTC trade show will begin the morning of July 13. Vendors will receive more information in early April.
