We are so excited about this unusual training opportunity. The FPLT steering committee members worked hard at securing sponsors so this 2-day program is only $40 for early registration! Enrollment will be capped at 50. Below is the draft agenda. Friday dinner will be catered by Nicole’s on the River and the food is good! Our hotel is across the street from the ocean on Amelia Island!

I hope to see you there.
