No More Stalling, the Beach Is Calling!

We are pleased to announce our 2024 Enterprise Advisory Council Annual Summit in beautiful Kiawah Island, South Carolina. The Applied Systems Enterprise Advisory Council is an exclusive invite-only group of executive leaders from some of the most strategic and innovation-focused insurance brokers across North America. Our annual Summit offers the opportunity to share ideas and experiences, market trends, and most importantly, it is where each of you help shape the future of the Applied Systems platform and solution offerings.

Based on your feedback last year, we have invited senior leaders from the top carriers to join us for a half-day strategic joint session, where we will openly discuss and tackle challenges within our industry. We look forward to building upon the success of our 2023 Summit in Banff, and we hope to see you in Kiawah Island!

The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island

Kiawah Island, South Carolina

Located about an hour from Charleston, Kiawah Island is ten miles of wide, immaculate, oceanfront beach. Soothing by day, romantic by night, the beach is complemented by the island’s river, meandering lagoons, pristine marshlands and maritime forests. Each sun-washed day ends beneath a star-studded southern sky.

Come experience Kiawah Island’s Five-Diamond accommodations, world-class resort amenities, and award-winning recreational and spa activities, all in the tranquil natural surroundings—for a travel experience you’ll wish would never end.

Island Adventures

  • The Ocean Course

    Kiawah Island is home to the world renowned “The Ocean Course”, purpose built to ensure a stunning view of Kiawah’s coastline from every hole. This iconic course has hosted every major PGA American Championship and one of the most contentious Ryder Cups to date, the 1991 “War by the Shore”. Your tee times are already booked and waiting for you!

  • The Great Outdoors

    Kiawah Island has endless ways to enjoy the natural beauty surrounding you. Enjoy a kayak tour through salt marshes, rent a bike and lead your own adventure, or take advantage of the reserved cabanas and enjoy some R&R while enjoying the view of the shore. Bocce, tennis, pickleball and so much more are ready whenever you are!

  • Pickleball

    Have you ever thought to yourself “Wow, I have to be the best pickleball player in the insurance industry!” but have never had a chance to prove it? This is your opportunity to show you reign supreme! Grab your racket and don’t forget your sunscreen as we will be crowning an EAC Pickleball king or queen.

  • Ryder Cup Bar

    Overlooking the 14th hole of the Ocean Course, the Ryder Cup Bar is the perfect spot for a post-round drink or to take in the spectacular views of the historic Ocean Course and the beach beyond.

  • The Atlantic Room

    Working with local fishers to procure only the freshest regional catches, the Atlantic Room is Kiawah Island’s signature seafood restaurant. The true hallmark of every dish is The Atlantic Room’s uncomplicated “taste of the season” preparations.

  • Mingo Point

    The Mingo Point Oyster Roast & BBQ is Kiawah Island Golf Resort’s longest-running event! Enjoy feasting on fresh oysters roasted over an open fire, along with other BBQ specialties, Lowcountry Boil and more, all right on the banks of the Kiawah River.
