Important Event Information

After considerable thought and discussion with some of the Members, in light of COVID, we have scheduled this meeting, in person, imposing a substantially changed format.   We will be outdoors at the Tampa Yacht Club, seated with four diners per large table.  Masks will be required until seated. Cocktails will be served at the tables to minimize mingling.  Standing microphones will be available during the Q&A to further minimize contact.  The dress code will be relaxed, business casual due to the season. Both valet and self-parking (to reduce contact) will be available. To further minimize risk, regrettably, we will not include students at this event. At the end of the meeting announcement, you will find the usual restrictions discouraging anyone with symptoms or otherwise presenting a risk from attending.


We appreciate the suggestions we’ve received regarding virtual meetings. Our national organization, ACFR, continues to provide valuable web-based content available to all Members. However, we believe our Members place particular value on personal Committee relationships which are not replicated in the virtual context.
Your input would be welcomed.
