PLEASE SEE THE NEWSLETTER TAB FOR A RECAP OF OUR APRIL 2018 MEETING IN TAMPA FLORIDA.
THE NEXT FL CIDAA GROUP MEETING WILL BE IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE "NATIONAL CIDAA" MEETING IN COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO SEP 26 – SEP 30
Greetings from the "President"
After a lot of research efforts, discussion and other back and forth, voting has been completed for the 2019 Spring Meeting. Because of cost constraints members felt it would be wise to hold the meeting at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort April 12-14, 2019 in Orlando. We know that a change of scenery is a welcome thing, and many wanted to go to Savannah, but the potential cost to members and the Group Treasury was just too great. Contractually the Orlando venue was the best. Room rates will be $105 plus 12.5% tax. Self-parking is free, as is Wi-Fi. Also, no cost to the treasury for a hospitality suite! Unfortunately, breakfast is not included, but a 25% off breakfast is available in Café Oseola.
I, and I am sure other members, would like to personally thank Ken Minton for his hard work negotiating with the Hilton in Savannah. It was not an easy task given the popularity of that venue. It was just a matter of potential cost to the Group.
Let us not forget that the prime purpose of the Group meetings is to gather for socially and to renew old friendships. When we formed the Group that was the main purpose and we wanted to be careful not to infringe upon the National Reunions.
Business wise, the spring meeting is the time for election of new officers, so please plan on attending.
An email will be sent with the details as soon as the contract is reviewed and approved.
We look forward to seeing everyone April 12-14, 2019 in Orlando.
L. Goetzelt, President, Florida CIDAA Group
