2020 Conference to Take Place One Day Earlier

Starting in 2020 in West Palm Beach, the conference will shift back one day to officially start with pre-conference education on Monday and conclude on Thursday with the Annual Awards Banquet. The change was driven by attendee comments; there was strong interest to travel to the conference on Monday and home on Friday. Because of how far in advance SFMA must plan its conferences to secure convention center space and hotel rooms, this model will also be in effect for the 2021 (Palm Springs, Calif.), and 2022 (Savannah, Ga.) conferences.
