Former South Carolina Governor and current Congressman Mark Sanders will speak to attendees of the 2016 Pro Dealer Industry Summit in Charleston, South Carolina, Oct. 25-27.
Sanders will deliver the closing keynote at the event, designed for lumberyard dealers, distributors and their suppliers.
Sanders was sworn-in as a member of the 113th Congress after winning a special election in May 2013. His official bio includes:
• As the 115th Governor of South Carolina, serving from 2003 until 2011, he accomplished a long list of firsts, such as cutting the marginal income tax rate, the largest recurring tax cut in state history, first of its kind tort reform, workers' compensation reform, and bringing about the first statewide charter school district in the nation. All these actions were aimed at making the state a more inviting place in which to invest and build a business, and cumulatively led to $24 billion in capital investment – more in his governorship than during any other administration in South Carolina's history.
• Prior to serving as governor, Mark represented South Carolina’s First Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives in Washington, DC from 1995 until 2001, where he was ranked by Citizens Against Government Waste and the National Taxpayers Union as the most financially conservative member in all of Congress for his efforts to rein in wasteful spending and reduce the national debt.
The Pro Dealer Industry Summit is co-hosted by the National Lumber and Building Material Dealers Association and HBSDealer. For more information about the Summit, including agenda and registration, click here.
