The 2010 Life with Brain Injury Statewide Conference, hosted by the Brain Injury Association of South Carolina and South Carolina Brain Injury Leadership Council was held July 15th and 16th at the Columbia Conference Center.
We are proud to announce that aside from the current state of our economy, we had over 300 registrants and 36 exhibitors for this year's conference! We also added another element to the conference: a silent auction that included a number of wonderful items ranging from tailgating packages to jewelry. the silent auction raised over $2,500.00 for the BIASC!
This year's conference included two Keynote Speakers: Dr. Kevin W. Kopera, Medical Director of Roger C. Peace Rehabilitation Hospital in Greenville, South Carolina and Mickey Plyler, recruiting analyst and host of Rush Hour (6-9am) on WCCP 104.9 in Upstate, South Carolina.
