FNGLA invites members to set sail for the 2020 FNGLA Annual Convention, taking place June 5-6 at the Embassy Suites St Augustine Beach Oceanfront Resort.
“FNGLA’s Annual Convention is a top-quality event for members to attend,” noted FNGLA President Shawn Thomas. “Its schedule is purposefully light so people have quality time to engage with colleagues and build significant relationships, yet still learn up-to-the-minute industry news and views and interact with political experts and agriculture leaders.”
This year’s theme is “La Florida” -- celebrating the timeless beauty of Florida through its flora (aka flowers, plants and trees) and the people and industry who are the horticulture stewards of Florida.
For those who wish to arrive prior to the convention for exploration of the area, FNGLA attendees will receive a 25 percent discount to take part in the St. Augustine Trolley Tours, one of the most convenient ways to visit the historic district of St. Augustine, as well as other nearby attractions.
For those wishing to investigate the plants and environment of Anastasia State Park, FNGLA will organize a group tour on Thursday, June 4. Individual tours are also available directly through the park whose entrance is located a short distance from the Embassy Suites.
The Embassy Suites is a new resort, and the only oceanfront convention hotel on St. Augustine Beach. Offering Embassy Suite added value standards, such as complimentary breakfast and Manager’s Reception, the hotel has a grand pool and recreational deck which flows onto the sands of the Atlantic Ocean beach.
FNGLA’s special rate of $211 includes the resort fee which provides internet access, beach chairs, bikes, yoga, resort activities, access to the fitness center, two bottles of water daily, and beach towels. A discounted parking fee of $10 is also being extended to FNGLA attendees.
It’s not too early to book your hotel room at FNGLA's website. •
