URGENT NEWS:  2017 FLAFCC/OSCA Conference CANCELLED!!!!

Yesterday morning (9/14) the FLAFCC Board made the decision to cancel the 2017 conference which was scheduled for Monday, September 25 through Wednesday, September 27.  This was a very difficult choice to make considering all the effort that has gone into the planning of the conference.  It is clear that everyone has been impacted to some degree by Hurricane Irma.  We know that our members and OSCA staff have obligations not only to their families but to the families we serve and our communities; energies are probably best spent close to home.  It may be weeks before some of us have power and water, the courts will be pushing to catch up after a week or more of shut down, and many of us have offices to fix and practices to restart.  We believe this decision is in everyone’s best interests but apologize for any inconvenience this decision causes you.

If you made hotel reservations please call the hotel as soon as possible and cancel.  You are responsible for cancelling your own reservation.  We are unable to cancel for you.  The hotel number is 407-859-1500.  We recommend that you call rather than attempt to cancel online.

As soon as we have clear dates and a confirmed location we will notify you regarding the 2018 FLAFCC/OSCA conference.  

If you already registered, are a speaker, sponsor or vendor you will soon, or have already received information regarding your refund options.  If you have questions you should contact the following person:
