This year we will be back at the Jupiter Beach Resort and Spa which has been a wonderful venue for our meeting in the past, and you can register on the internet at (https://www.jupiterbeachresort.com/) using the special GROUP code FLENTS0721 or call them at 1-877-389-0571 and give them the group code to receive the group rate. Rooms will be $139/night (single/double occupancy or quad for students), with no resort fee, and government rate rooms will also be available. Plan to bring your family and enjoy the same room rates for up to three days before or after the meeting. Look for announcements soon requesting symposia topics, your submitted and student competition papers, member honors and awards nominations, and student scholarships, travel awards and mini-grants. We will be working hard to assemble an exciting and diverse scientific program and look forward to seeing you there.
