The 70th Annual Meeting & Leadership Conference will take place at the Saddlebrook Resort Tampa in Wesley Chapel, Florida (near Tampa). The resort itself is located within a gated and secure nature preserve that is home to colorful birds and wildlife such as Sandhill Cranes, Wood Storks, Great Blue Herons, Snowy Egrets and even gators, along with verdant vegetation that exists in harmony with the natural layout of the hotel grounds. To showcase the serenity and natural beauty of the resort, all of Saddlebrook's accommodations are clustered around nine park-like courtyards made up of four buildings (50 suites) with a mini park featuring colorful gardens, stone benches, stone paver walkways, and lush natural landscaping.
Reservations are now being accepted at the Saddlebrook Resort. Be sure to make your reservation early, as accommodations will likely sell out fast. Rooms are available until the room block is full or until February 18, 2019, whichever comes first - so act fast to secure your room!
