Strong Preliminary Interest in Upcoming Technical Meeting

Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa

Early registrations for the upcoming Technical Meeting, being held December 4-7, in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida are running well ahead of last year’s Technical Meeting (which set records for ASBA in 2009). A strong program, internationally-recognized keynote speaker Robert Stevenson, an attractive destination with world-class golf and tennis venues, strong interest in ASBA’s certification programs/exams, and/or the promise of networking with industry peers about what’s working and what’s not….whatever the reason, people are making plans to come to the 2010 ASBA Technical Meeting. Don’t be left behind.

Interest in this year’s Golf Tournament at TPC Sawgrass is high, and ASBA is limited as to the number of participants permitted on the course. ASBA is accepting registrations on a first-come, first-served basis – with final counts due to the course by November 3. If you’re interested in golfing TPC Sawgrass, register today!

You should have received complete program and registration information in the mail. Materials and registration options are also posted on ASBA’s website: Others may contact the Association and ask to be put on the list, at 866-501-ASBA (2722) or 410-730-9595.
