***Hawks Cay update***

Unfortunately, we have received notice that the resort no longer has discounted rooms with the “AORN15” rate.

However, the resort has informed us that they will honor another discount for medical personnel with the “Hero’s Welcome” rate. Please use the code “HEROS” when booking your room. After booking, kindly email lee1103@aol.com to ensure that we receive credit for your booking.

If you have further questions regarding room reservations, kindly email Lee at lee1103@aol.com. Thank you!

Membership Dues

Just a friendly reminder: if your membership has expired or is getting ready to expire, renew before June 30th to avoid the increase in the membership dues rate. And, don’t forget to renew under our Chapter #1004, AORN South Florida!
