In addition, every morning during the conference, you will receive an email with the schedule for the day and links to the agendas for that day’s meetings.
Are continuing education credits available?
All attendees will be provided with a Certificate of Attendance, along with the topics worked on, that they can submit for educational credit to their certifying organizations as proof of continuing professional education.
What if I want to arrive early, or stay a few days longer?
The quoted hotel rates are available 3 nights before the Conference, subject to the hotel having the rooms available. As of May 3, the Naples Grande is nearly full beginning on June 14; if you wish to check out later than the 14th, the extra nights will be at the hotel’s usual rates, if a room is available. (If you requested a longer stay prior to May 3, your request was accomodated.)

Exciting News: CEMA has added an optional beer tasting at a local award-winning brewery to the Engineering Conference for Monday, June 12 — the free night at the Conference. (Guests are welcome to attend whether or not they are registered for other meals at the Conference.)
Bone Hook Brewing Co. offers the largest selection of freshly made beers of any brewpub in Florida, with at least 20 available every day. “The Hook” offers great beer, great food, and great service, in a relaxing atmosphere.
An open-air trolley will pick up the beer group at 6pm at the hotel. You’ll then travel to the brewpub, where you will each enjoy a beer flight – four 5-oz pours of some of Bone Hook’s most popular brews — while tasting some of their delicious appetizers. Next up is a pint of your choosing – one from the flight, or another of the many choices brewed right on the premises. You can choose to purchase additional food and beverages, before re-boarding the trolley at 9:30 to head back to the hotel.
The cost per person is $60; click HERE to register by June 2!
