COVID-19 UPDATE

After great consideration, the Executive Board has decided to cancel the October conference in St Petersburg. The Executive Board has worked diligently with the Florida Accreditation Office to provide a "virtual conference". The training agenda is available under the Accreditation Training Week Information tab.

With that being said, here is some information and hopefully answers to some questions:

In regards to the reservations, you are responsible to contact the hotel and cancel your individual hotel room reservation. 

In regards to conference registrations, we are asking that if you intend on attending the February conference you simply transfer the registration to that conference. If you do not intend on being at the February conference and need a refund, please contact our treasurer Jack Vaccaro at jvaccaro@lighthousepoint.com in order to request a refund. We are asking that you email him directly when addressing the registrations so that nothing is missed or slips between the cracks. Please bear with him as it pertains to the refund as this could be a bit overwhelming along with his other duties.

Please take care and stay healthy!
