Member Portal and More in September’s Digest

September’s issue of Digest includes a look at KICA’s member portal, which launches on Sept. 8 at Learn how this portal will streamline your interactions with the association. This is a part of KICA’s recent database upgrade.

Here are some other interesting items at a glance:

– The Wannamaker Trophy has arrived at Kiawah from San Francisco and, less than a year from now, 156 of the world’s best golf professionals follow, fighting for a chance at the 2021 title. The PGA Championship will be played May 17-23, 2021 at the Kiawah Island Golf Resort’s Ocean Course. Get a brief look at the preparations, as well as some can’t-miss items for ticket holders.

– It’s boating season in the Lowcountry, and it’s also an ideal time to get more information on water-levels in the area. To help with this, the Town of Kiawah Island recently installed a new tide gauge at the Kiawah River. This tide gauge, the first at the site since the 1970s, will allow viewers to see NOAA tide predictions alongside real-time water level measurements for the first time.

– One of KICA resilience specialist Lucas Hernandez’s main priorities is meeting with property owners to discuss their specific experience with island flooding. During those visits, he offers information on steps these individual property owners can take to optimize water flow on their properties when the issue is not one that involves KICA’s common property drainage or infrastructure. Each lot has different complications and advantages, meaning there’s no one-size-fits-all approach. Take a look at some of the methods property owners can use and how they work.
