2017 State of the Port Address Postponed

The Propeller Club of Charleston Board of Governors has decided to postpone the State of the Port Address scheduled for Monday, September 11, 2017.

While no one knows what effect Hurricane Irma will have on Charleston, it is likely we will be impacted in some way. Whether it’s a glancing blow, a second landfall, or a first landfall and whether we are an evacuation zone or an evacuation haven, Monday is not looking like a day to gather anywhere in the Southeast.

Thank you for your continued support. A new date will be announced as soon as possible. We wish you, your family and businesses safe passage through this storm.


John E. Cameron

President, Propeller Club of Charleston
