February updates

Hello convention goers. I am excited to tell you that we are back on track to put on another great convention at the beautiful Fort Lauderdale Marriott Harbor Beach Resort and Spa. We did have a little hiccup, but with God’s help and the cooperation of the folks at the hotel, we were able to get resolution. Just to ease the minds of anyone who may have heard, there will be some construction at the hotel, but it will be put on hold during our convention and we will not lose any of our meeting space or guest rooms.

If our trends continue we may break past attendance records. Thanks to you all. But in order to do that, we need to continue to get the word out. We are getting close to selling out of the Friday banquet and more than half of the Saturday banquets have been sold. So, if you have procrastinated about purchasing the meals, now is the time.

Let’s talk about our sporting events, Golf, Walk/Run, Beach Volleyball and new to the Florida State Convention Cornhole. Did you know that there are cornhole tournaments? I watched a few of them that were televised. Who knew how popular this sport is. Our unique 2 mile Walk/Run is held on the beach; and we all know how much more challenging walking and running in sand can be. Beach Volleyball, well what can I say about that. We have had great tournaments in past conventions and I am sure this year will be similar. Finally, there is the Golf Tournament. This year it will be held at the Pompano Municipal Golf course same as last time in 2018. Who will be taking home the coveted Coffee Pot Trophy?

Besides all the activities, we will have meditation on the beach in the mornings. Last time, there were close to 100 sea turtle hatchlings that joined the meditation meeting on Thursday morning on their way to the ocean.

Want to volunteer? Just click here Volunteer Form, fill out the form and you will be contacted by our volunteer coordinator. We do have 30+ committees, so something for everyone. The convention is just the icing on the cake, the fun is being a part of putting it all together. Not only are you doing service, but the fellowship is awesome.

I am humbled and honored to be your Chair for this convention and look forward meeting you all. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at chair2022fsc@gmail.com.

Your 65th Florida State Convention Chair Karen Valiquette
