Dear FRS and FRBMA members:

It is with much regret but with the utmost of concern for safety that we announce today that the 2020 Annual Meeting of the FRS and the FRBMA is cancelled for July 15-19, 2020.

This decision has been weighing heavily on our minds for the past months, as we continued to follow the COVID-19 pandemic trends and guidelines from the Florida Department of Health and CDC. Out of concern for all, this meeting will not take place in 2020.

Due to the nature of the meeting, it was felt that a virtual meeting would not have had the same impact and we have elected not to have a virtual annual meeting. The Westin Fort Lauderdale has graciously allowed us to move the scheduled meeting contract for this July to a future meeting date in July of 2025.

Please note that if you have made hotel reservations for the Westin Fort Lauderdale for the July 2020 meeting you will need to cancel those reservations directly with the hotel. If you have registered for the meeting as an attendee, an exhibitor, and/or a sponsor of the Job Fair, the registration fees will be fully refunded to you, upon request.

Thank you for your patience in awaiting the fate of the July meeting. As a medical community, we have made all decisions with the utmost respect for our responsibilities to our members, staff, attendees, invited guests and general public.

The FRS FRBMA annual meeting will resume with the July 16-18, 2021 meeting at the Ritz Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes. We look forward to seeing each and every one of you there!

Stay Healthy and Safe,
