How can you get better at managing your auto recycling business? Where can you find lots of other people who know your struggles and have good ideas to share? The FADRA Convention!

FADRA 2021 Convention is On!

Save the Date: July 15-18, 2021

The Convention is scheduled for July 15-18 2021. Speakers include Greg Condon, Jonathan Morrow, Scotty Robertson, Jason Howell of eBay, an auditor from the Florida Dept. of the Treasury, a forklift certification seminar from SAS Forks, and much more. Mike Kunkel's user group and Recyclers Cross Dock will also be meeting in conjunction with FADRA. 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.

FADRA returns to a familiar favorite this year, the Sheraton Sand Key Resort in Clearwater Beach. In a year with so much uncertainty, we want to work with a facility and people with whom we have a level of trust and familiarity. With 10 acres of private beach, spacious rooms, a pool with adjacent Poolside Café and the Turtle Bar, tennis courts, spa, fitness center, and three on-site dining options (The Mainstay Tavern sports bar, Island Grille, and Rusty’s Bistro) inside the resort, you’ll be comfortable and entertained. The Sheraton Sand Key is near major shopping districts in Dunedin and Ybor City as well as the many attractions of the Clearwater itself, including the nightly festival at Pier 60. Bring yourself, your employees, and your family to this wonderful destination on July 15-18, 2021.
