American Board of Disability Analysts (ABDA)



Naples, Florida in 2017

The next bi-annual event is to be held in Naples, Florida - October 14-15, 2017.
The Program Committee is already accepting proposals for that conference which may
be mailed, e-mailed or faxed (615) 327-9235 at any time. Early registration is strongly
recommended. Book your hotel early and request "American Board" room rate ($175).

Our hotel sits directly on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico beach and is unique by having its own 18-hole golf course on property too. This meeting will be the first in our history to have golf available to members and guests directly on the property of our meeting. Opportunities for tropical relaxation abound and there is something for everyone in Naples. Downtown Naples is rich in history with shops, upscale restaurants and an iconic wooden dock that extends a thousand feet into the water, a structure that is visited by persons from all over the world. The gentle waves of the Gulf of Mexico allow swimming and a host of water sports. Our "American Board" room block rate of $175 plus tax will fill early - so do not delay and register now at The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club.
