The Association of Family and Conciliation Courts (AFCC) 43 rd Annual Conference, Juggling Conflicts, Crises and Clients in Family Court, originally scheduled for New Orleans, will be relocated to the Westin Innisbrook Resort in Tampa Bay, Florida. The conference will take place over the original dates of May 31-June 3, 2006.
AFCC is an interdisciplinary and international association of professionals dedicated to the resolution of family conflict. Between 600-800 professionals from all over the world will attend the annual conference in Florida.
AFCC President Hugh Starnes, Family Court Judge from Fort Myers, said that the decision to relocate was a difficult one, but something that was in the best interest of the association members. “We wanted to take enough time and give ourselves every opportunity to hold the conference in New Orleans,” he said. “But due to the ongoing uncertainty about the status of New Orleans, we felt that we needed to make a move.” AFCC has made arrangements to return to New Orleans in 2009.
AFCC will have the opportunity to work closely with its Florida Chapter during the conference and the chapter will be presenting a special pre-conference institute.
The Westin Innisbrook Resort is offering AFCC conference attendees room rates of $128, the lowest AFCC Annual Conference hotel rates since 1996! Guests can look forward to relaxing by the pool or taking a short shuttle ride to beautiful Gulf beaches. The resort offers four championship golf courses, a children’s recreation center, as well as 70 acres of lakes, jogging and biking trails.
