    New Location for 2019 Conference - Lido Beach Resort 

    The 2019 Regional and Branch Campus Administrators Leadership Conference is moving to the Lido Beach Resort, Sarasota, FL while the Resort at Longboat Key undergoes renovations. 

    Since the Lido Beach Resort is located just one mile south of the Resort at Longboat Key Club, air travel and local area dining plans will not change. In addition,  all guests will also have unlimited access to the amenities at the Longboat Key Club, including Golf, Spa and Tennis, as well as complimentary on-demand shuttle service to and from each property as well as St. Armand’s Circle.

    The Lido Beach Resort is a very special property in its own right.  All Suites of the Resort were renovated in late 2016 with a fresh color scheme and modern, chic décor.  Each well-appointed suite will provide similar amenities to Longboat Key in a setting past participants already know and love in Sarasota.  

    Additional Details on the Lido Beach Resort is available on their website https://www.lidobeachresort.com/
