Florida association gears up for summer gathering

Posted on January 31, 2011

OCALA, Fla. — The Florida Association for Pupil Transportation (FAPT) will host its 63rd Summer Symposium here June 28 and 29.

The symposium will offer many of the workshops and the supplier trade show associated with FAPT's past conferences, but in a shorter time frame.

The Ocala site in central Florida was selected to make the symposium easily accessible to as many general and supplier members as possible.

The host hotel will be the Ocala Hilton. Details will be forthcoming as the final plans are made, and they will be posted on www.faptflorida.org.

Questions can be directed to Shirley Higgins, FAPT executive director, at [email protected] or (863) 235-0056.
