FADRA 2021 Convention is On!


FADRA Convention Information


The Convention is scheduled for July 15-18 2021. Speakers include Greg Condon, Jonathan Morrow, an auditor from the Florida Dept. of the Treasury, a forklift certification seminar, meetings in tandem with the Profit Team user group and Recyclers Cross Dock, and much more. A full registration schedule will be published and online registration open in April.

After a year of COVID-19 pandemic and monitoring the improving situation in Florida, the FADRA Board of Directors has agreed to hold its 2021 annual convention in person. It's full speed ahead and our members from both yards and vendor companies are eager to meet again in person to learn from the best in the business and reconnect on a human level. However, he safety of our members, vendors and staff remains of paramount importance, and the meeting will reflect that. The Sheraton Sand Key has developed numerous measures to provide adequate social spacing and cleaning that has made meetings possible there, without adverse effects. There will be changes to the trade show and more outdoor and on-your-own activities to avoid too much potential exposure to germs. 

We're very excited to come out of the pandemic strong and ready to move forward. FADRA welcomes members from all over our state and the Southeast for a premier industry event. I look forward to seeing everyone again.
