The FSFOA Fall 2018 Conference will take place November 6 – 9, 2018 at the Sanibel Harbour Marriott Resort in Fort Myers.  The conference could not take place without the support of our wonderful sponsors and we look forward to seeing you.

Conference registration is $1,500.  The registration covers two of your team members, booth/2-chairs, group breakfast, Welcome Reception on Tuesday, Thursday evening event, and admission to all of our meetings.  For those companies bringing more than two team members, additional per person registration will be $125. 

FSFOA is officially paperless and we strongly encourage you to register online. During registration process please provide all the information requested so we can ensure everything is correct in our online program and conference app. For example, when we ask for the team members that will be attending the conference, that information will be used to prepare the conference badges. The link to register is below on the right side of the screen.

The conference rate for the hotel is $139 per night and includes complimentary wi-fi.  Reservations must be made no later than October 15, 2018 to receive the group rate and can be made online by copying the following address and pasting it into your browser goo.gl/K6b3WC, by using the Hotel Website link at the top of this page  or by calling 1-800-767-7777 and referencing the Florida School Finance Officers Association.  The online registration may reference a resort fee but that has been waived for the conference and will be managed at the hotel.  Should the conference hotel reach capacity, the alternate hotel is the Residence Inn Forty Myers/Sanibel, which is a 6 minute drive from the conference.  A room rate of $124 is available through October 20th if you reference Florida School Finance Officers Association.

Materials can be shipped to the hotel using the address below.  The materials will be delivered to your booth/table for set up on Tuesday. Once you arrive, please ask for Michael Yanosik or Gretchen Saunders if you have any questions with the set-up process.
