Registration Deadline has been extended to September 27,
NOTE: The guest room block and
group rate negotiated with the hotel includes costs incurred
to provide us with the large quantity of meeting space we
require for our meetings. If we do not occupy a sufficient
amount of guest rooms throughout the meeting, we will incur
additional costs for meeting room rental charges. Therefore,
we encourage all meeting participants to stay in the host
hotel. Consequently, guests not staying at the Hilton
Sandestin during the conference will be charged a $100
facilities fee to cover their portion of meeting room rental
charges incurred. [Explanation
of Facilities Usage Fee] See registration fees below.
If your residential address is in Walton County, you are
exempt from the Facilities Usage Fee stated above.

A “Guest Registration Fee” is available this year that
allows participation in the Monday Welcome Reception,
Tuesday Horticultural Auction and the Wednesday Awards
Breakfast. Please note that ‘guests’ are not permitted to
attend the daily educational sessions or refreshment breaks.
We appreciate your cooperation in this matter.
We are also pleased to announce “One-Day Fees” that allow
full participation in all events for that day only.
Each day will have a different colored nametag to help
identify the one-day attendees. We hope that this will help
those attendees that can only come for one day’s educational
sessions and networking.
