Hurricane Irma Jeopardizes Board and Committee Meetings Location
(September 21, 2017)
- The January Board & Committee meetings are presently scheduled for January 3 – 6 at the Naples Grande Resort and Conference Center
in Naples, Florida. However, Hurricane Irma hit the Naples area and power is still out in many parts of the city.
Currently, management personnel for the Naples Grande hotel are in the process of conducting a thorough assessment of damage sustained, but a brief initial report to the Association indicated that the property sustained more damage than originally estimated. The Association will remain in daily contact with hotel representatives while their timeline is established for repairs and re-opening.
In the meantime, backup properties around Miami are being explored, as well as property locations in other parts of the country. Beyond space availability, SC&RA will obviously consider rates and all other factors to help ensure another successful meeting. With very short notice and tight hotel capacity, attendees will need to be flexible on location and dates.
Members and attendees are encouraged to be on the lookout for updates regarding the meeting via email and the weekly newsletter.
