June Updates and Hotel information

Greetings to all,

Can you believe it? We are almost there. Only a few more months left to register and purchase your sporting events, merchandise and most important your banquets. Yes, the banquets are almost sold out, and once that happens, the hotel will not let us add any more. So, if you have procrastinated till this point, now is the time.

As for the rest of the committees and convention updates, we are working out all of the details so that all of you can enjoy this convention. We are creating signs, so you will always know which way to go; meeting with volunteers, so you will always have somebody to ask if your unsure; working with our audio visual committee to ensure you can hear and see all of our wonderful speakers and gathering all of your input since this is YOUR convention.

The hotel room block is currently full, we are maintaining a wait list, please follow this linkhttps://forms.gle/sgikAZVsad9LdzAx5 to be added to the wait list.
In the past we have been able to place a good number of people from our wait list into rooms at the host hotel, usually in the few weeks just before the convention. However, in an effort to assure that you have a hotel room for the convention, we have negotiated with a couple of hotels close by for an “overflow room block”. This information is below… It would be our suggestion that you book a room at one of these hotels now, making sure to secure a cancellable reservation, so that if a room opens up at the host hotel you will be able to move over at that time. These hotels are within a mile of the Harbor Beach Marriott and will be included on our courtesy shuttle route during the convention.
Our overflow options are:
Best Western Plus Oceanside Inn – Room rate varies by night but the average per night is $160.50 – Parking is $15 per day, no resort fee. HOT/COLD Breakfast is INCLUDED

B Ocean Resort Fort Lauderdale: Room rate is $159 per night, Parking is $47 daily (overnight) – Resort fee has been waived

Courtyard Ft Lauderdale Beach: Room rate is $159 per night, Parking is $30 daily (overnight) – Resort fees have been waived

Can not wait to see all your smiling faces in a few months. Until then, continue to be Happy, Joyous and Free!

In Loving Service, Karen Valiquette, Your 65th Florida State Convention Chair
