FPA Member Golf Tournament

The 2017 Florida Parking Association Conference begins with our ‘infamous’ golf tournament on Tuesday afternoon, November 28, 2017, with shotgun starts at 12:15 – 12:51pm on Holes 1 and 10 on the fabulous Fazio Course. Recently renovated by third-generation designer Tom Fazio II who emphasized modernizing the course layout, Fazio believes the renovation achieves that ideal balance where single digit golfers will be fully challenged while higher handicaps will have a layout ideal for a day of enjoyable resort golf. You can easily register for this fabulous outing through the conference registration link. For questions, please contact Chester Escobar at cescobar@spplus.com 

Having the golf tournament on Tuesday afternoon, leaves FPA all day on Wednesday and Thursday to showcase our exhibitors and offer educational presentations to further every parking professional’s career. We are very excited to extend our fabulous FPA Conference; the educational and networking experience is second to none nationwide.

Conference Speakers and Presentations

The call for speakers and presentation will be sent in September. We are looking for great speakers and sessions that will provide continuing education and job training, both crucial elements to our parking industry, especially in today’s economic situation and fast evolving world! We will post the agenda on our website as soon as it is available. But, as in the past, we will have state-of-the-art speakers and presentations for our continuing education in parking.

 

 

**Special Offer for those attending this year’s conference**

The Florida Parking Association Board of Directors are always looking for opportunities to create special offers for conference attendees. There are presently no special offers for the 2017 conference. We encourage you to check the site frequently as offers may become available between now and the close of online registration.

 

Now, I ask you – who would not want to be in Florida in November? And, have an opportunity to mingle and meet with your peers and industry leaders, while you are learning and having a great time!
