NCSite goes South of the Border for SDITE Meeting

This past week, 42 NCSite members attended the annual Southern District ITE Meeting in Columbia, SC. Hats off to the Local Arrangements Committee and SCSite for all their hard work and preparation to host the meeting and for showing us all a great time in our neighbor state.

News from the District

  • The Southern District adopted a SDITE 2022 Strategic Plan at the Annual Board Meeting, focusing on seven goals including improved communication, external influence, and support to the Sections.
  • NCSite was awarded the 2016 Best Large Section Award (right).  Thanks to the 2016 Board, officers, members and affiliates for ending our long runner-up streak!
  • NCSite member Stanley Polanis was awarded the John F. Exnicios Government Employee Outstanding Service Award.  Congratulations Stan!
  • NC State advanced to the SDITE Traffic Bowl final round after a six-round tie-breaker Final Jeopardy with LSU, but finished 2nd overall to Clemson in the finale.  Good luck to the Tigers in Toronto!


As usual, the meeting mixed business with fellowship and shenanigans.  NCSite played part to a raucous roll call with a salute to South of the Border and enjoyed other states’ skits that include duck calls, Prince, and South Carolina “just always winning.”  The meeting provided great technical and professional development sessions as well as tours of the Amazon Fulfillment Center and the Columbia Canal. But most importantly, SDite brought the house down with an AWESOME ’80s PARTY at the Columbia Art Museum.  A great time was had by all and make plans for next year’s meeting in Mobile, AL.
