The FAHRO Annual Conference Will Not Be Held In 2020


The 2020 FAHRO Annual Conference scheduled for August 25-27, 2020 will not be held due to the resurgence of risks presented by the COVID-19 (Coronavirus). Our Annual Conference is the highlight event of the year and brings together many public housing professionals and service providers in Florida and also from across the nation. Thus, the unanimous board decision that it would not be possible to hold this year’s annual conference was not taken lightly or without careful consideration and consultation.

The FAHRO Board of Directors and staff has monitored the COVID-19 situation closely. FAHRO's priority in making this decision is the health, safety, and well-being of our members, our staff, our exhibitors, sponsors and speakers. At this time, there are no plans to reschedule the conference, due to the uncertainty we are all facing at the moment and the inability to set an accurate timeline. The 2021 FAHRO Annual Conference is planned for September 13-16, 2021 at the JW Marriott in Orlando.

To all of our attendees and exhibitors who were planning to attend, we apologize for the inconvenience this has caused.  You may roll over your Attendee, Exhibit, Sponsorship and Advertising fees to be applied to the 2021 conference and you will be automatically registered. Or, FAHRO is happy to offer a full refund.  Our registration staff will contact you with specific instructions on how to request a refund or roll over your registration. Due to the circumstances, we are currently working on how we will execute this most efficiently. We ask for your patience as we navigate this process. 

FAHRO is dedicated to preserving the hard work its presenters poured into preparation for this conference and looks to provide alternate educational training opportunities for our members. We will be working with the current slate of presenters to try to provide a valuable and user friendly training alternative.  FAHRO will keep our membership advised of the developments.

Hotel Reservations and Cancellations: The JW Marriott will cancel all reservations made under FAHRO's room reservation block. A notice of cancellation will be sent to the email address used when making the reservation. In the event that you do not receive a cancellation notice or you made your hotel reservations outside the FAHRO reservation block and/or through a third party hotel booking site, you are encouraged to contact the hotel to cancel your reservation. If you need to contact the hotel regarding your reservation, please call: 407-206-2300.

On behalf of the FAHRO board of directors and staff, we truly appreciate our members and the outpouring of support we have received during the planning process and now, in the wake of this news. FAHRO is a member-run, not-for-profit organization that exists to serve its members, so we appreciate your continued support. Please do not hesitate to contact us with questions, concerns, or requests.
