TACTIX starts next week, and we are excited to see you! Below is information you may find helpful as you plan your trip. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to email the TACTIX Planning Team.

See full agenda details.


The seminar has been pre-approved for 5.33 General Credits and 1 Ethics Credit in South Carolina. States that are not pre-approved may still offer credit for the seminar if attendees apply for credit on an individual basis following the seminar.


Transportation to Bulls Bay from Hotel Bennett will leave the Hotel at 7 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 2. Water and coffee will be provided. Following the 9-hole tournament, transportation will be provided back to Hotel Bennett around 11 a.m. All golfers will receive a box lunch.


As many of you know, the dress for the seminar is business casual. The Wednesday night Welcome Reception is outside on the Hotel Bennett’s rooftop. The Soiree is at a working barn, so the dress is western casual, including shoes you don’t mind getting dusty. The venue is covered, but portions of the event are outside the barn, weather permitting.


The registration fee is $395 per person. New this year, we are offering a reduced rate of $250 for co-counsel who have been practicing less than 8 years. Additionally, if you are a first-time TACTIX attendee, the registration fee is $250. We encourage you to bring anyone from your firm who you believe would benefit from this exclusive co-counsel event and the knowledge and opportunities that will be shared throughout the seminar.
