2023 State Convention Registration Form

Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • This is only the first step to completing registration. Once you have submitted the form, you still have to make payment using any of the methods listed on the form.
  • The deadline for preregistration and banquet is September 10, 2023, at 11:59 p.m. EDT.
  • Late banquet meal purchases will not be accepted after September 30, 2023, at 11:59 p.m. EDT. If you wish to attend banquet and are registering late, you can not purchase a banquet ticket beyond this date, even if you register at the convention.
  • The Google registration form is for individual registrations only. Chapters or groups that are registering multiple people for convention must contact Sylvia Young using the contact information on the registration form.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing all of you at convention!

We encourage all attendees to make their hotel reservations as soon as possible to ensure your booking. The hotel information is below, including the convention code and direct booking link. The convention rate for Embassy Suites USF is $115 per night plus tax. Our convention runs from Friday, October 6 through the evening of Sunday, October 8. If you are planning to attend the banquet Sunday evening, you should reserve your room with a check-out date of Monday, October 9. Shoulder days are available, based upon hotel availability. The shoulder days are up to two days pre-convention and two days post-convention; this means that you can come early to Tampa and still pay the convention rate of $115 per night plus tax. Contact Camille Tate or any member of our affiliate board if you have questions. Reserve as soon as possible! We have contracted for a certain number of room nights and the hotel does not have to guarantee the convention rate once our room block has been met. Additionally, shoulder days may be limited based upon hotel occupancy and reservations at the time of booking.
