Because of the unexpected high volume of attendance, the Tradewinds Island Resort has run out of rooms at the conference rate at the main hotel.

We are now booking at the sister hotel located on the resort property, the Sandpiper, just a short walk down the beach.  This resort hotel was completely renovated in 2008 and is gorgeous – many of the rooms are one-bedroom suites.  

The room rates are the same, and all the amenities of the Tradewinds (see below) remain available to conference registrants, with no additional fees.

When you register for the conference, our Registrar, Ken Casper, will forward you the hotel registration form, and the resort hotel will take it from there.

In the meantime, here’s a peek at the Sandpiper:
