On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Ethics Society of Hilton Head, we welcome you to an exciting year of programming for 2019. We are pleased to announce that our upcoming meetings will be held at the new University of South Carolina Beaufort (USCB) Hospitality Center, located just off Pope Avenue on One Sand Shark Drive (Formerly Office Park Road).
Our first Board of Directors meeting of 2019, which was held January 9th, opened with the nomination and election of Gordon Haist, PhD as Chair of the Board of Directors. Dr. Haist is recently retired as Professor of Philosophy at USCB and was a former colleague of our founding Director, Howard Radest.
Chair Gordon Haist then led the Board in expressing their sincere gratitude to retiring Chairs Gerry Schroeter, Neil Funnell, and Isam Sakati for their many years of leadership and service.
Chair Haist appointed a Board of Directors for 2019. Former Chair Gerry Schroeter was asked to serve as Communications Chair. Isam Sakati was asked to remain in service as Sergeant-at-Arms, and Steve Asheroff was named Treasurer. (See Directors Page)
The topic of our February 6, 2019 meeting at the USCB Hospitality Center, will be “The Global Petroleum Industry: Varied Ethical Factors Encountered by International Oil Companies”. As a security measure all persons entering the USCB building must register; therefore, members are asked to arrive by 3:15. Gerry Schroeter and Betsy Doughty will be present to register and guide attendees to Room 103 for the meeting.
Continuing our policy of no membership dues, the BOD wishes to announce that occasionally, there will be an opportunity to make a contribution to offset operating expenses. New members and guests are always welcomed to our meetings. Just send your email address to Communications Chair Gerryschroeter@gmail.com.
We expect 2019 to be another rewarding year of exploring ethical issues, learning alternative points of view, and enjoying mutually rewarding discussions with one another.
