As we move into the second day of the conference, we would like to acknowledge that Hurricane Michael's impact has been felt far and wide within our region; for some it affected travel plans, for others, it impacted you and your families in ways that may take time to recover. Our hearts go out to those impacted and we hope that in the coming days those affected are able to restore their sense of peace and stability.
For those of you who were able to join us at the conference, we appreciate you making the journey to get here and hope your conference experience will be enriching and invigorating. Although we experienced some cancellations, we were also able to move some sessions to a later time so that presenters could still provide these sessions to you. Therefore, please check the updated conference app or view the bulletin board near the registration desk for a list of changed and/or cancelled sessions. In addition to a series of great sessions throughout the day, we hope you will join us for the Business Meeting and Awards Luncheon at noon in the Palisades Ballroom. We also have a fun reception planned tonight on the pool deck overlooking the beach and look forward to seeing you there.
