"The biggest question I always hear is how and why are the time frames for the tourist and resident hurricane evacuation decisions are made for the County," said Jodi Weinhofer, President of the Lodging Association of the Florida Keys and Key West, the conference’s organizing body. "We should have all who are responsible for those decisions tell us how they are accomplished."
Cost for the conference is $10 per person and reservations can be made by calling the Lodging Association at (305) 296-4959 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Although the conference is geared to tourism-related businesses in the Keys, it is open to the business community and anyone can register.
