CONFERENCE REGISTRATION
Early Bird Registration will be accepted through February 2, 2018.

Pre-registration for the conference is strongly encouraged; however, you may register on-site, provided space is available, beginning Sunday, April 15, 2018 from noon to 6:00 p.m. or Monday through Wednesday between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.

SUGGESTED DRESS CODE 
We suggest business-casual dress for all conference workshops. You are invited to wear your party clothes for both the President’s Reception and the Banquet, but you will also be comfortable in business casual. Also be prepared for an outdoor Beach Party on Monday evening.

SUNDAY PRESIDENT'S RECEPTION
Plan to join us on Sunday evening for our President’s Reception from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. This event is free to attendees registered for the conference. This will be your first opportunity to catch up with old friends and meet some new ones. Tickets are available for non-attendees at a cost of $25. Come and enjoy the food and drink as we honor and thank our current President, Pam Sala, for her service and leadership of ERICSA.

BEACH PARTY
We will be hosting a beach party on the patio and onto the beach on Monday evening (weather permitting). There will be food and drinks as well as music and games. There will be a complete dinner with hamburgers, hot dogs, BBQ chicken, multiple salads and desserts, plus beer, wine, and soft drinks. We’ll end the night with an egg toss competition on the sand. It will be a beach night to remember! This event is optional and NOT included in the registration fees. Tickets are $25 each and additional tickets for non-attendees can also be purchased for $25.

BANQUET AND PRIVATE PARTY
Make sure to join us Wednesday, April 18 for the 2018 ERICSA Banquet which will have great food, friends, and most importantly, fun! The evening begins with cocktails at 5:30 p.m., followed by dinner.

Once dinner ends we have more fun planned with a short walk to a private ERICSA after party at the 509 Lounge, only a block and a half from the hotel. ERICSA is renting out the entire facility for your dancing and drinking pleasure, from 8:00 – midnight. 

CLE CREDIT
ERICSA traditionally has been able to provide several hours of continuing legal education (CLE) credits at each annual conference. ERICSA anticipates that there will be at least 19 workshops and plenaries eligible for CLE credits. An ERICSA Certificate of Completion showing each session attended will be provided for the attorneys who would like CLE credit. There will be a fee of $25 for this service.

ERICSA SCHOLARSHIPS
Once again ERICSA is offering two scholarships to IV-D child support workers currently employed in a Title IV-D child support program (includes state, county, tribal, international, and contract staff for attendance at the Daytona Beach, FL conference).

One scholarship will be awarded to a child support professional outside Florida and one will be awarded to a Florida professional.

The scholarship award will cover the registration fee for the successful candidates as well as transportation costs to and from the conference and a daily stipend for the days the candidate attends the conference.

Applying for the scholarship is easy. Just complete the application telling us why you think attending the conference would be beneficial to you in your employment.

Applications must be received no later than February 15, 2018, and can be sent to:

IT'S A "WIN-WIN" SITUATION: VISITING OUR SPONSORS & EXHIBITORS AND ATTENDING OUR WORKSHOPS 
You can be a winner! What do you have to do? Be sure to visit the Exhibit Hall to meet representatives from the organizations and companies that graciously sponsor the ERICSA conference. Attendees will receive a game card in their registration packet that requires them to visit all exhibitors in the vendor area to complete the game. Drop off your completed card (with your name on it) at the ERICSA booth, and you’ll be entered into daily drawings for great prizes during the afternoon breaks.

FIRST TIMERS 
Is this your first time attending an ERICSA Conference? Join us for an opportunity to hear about the ERICSA organization, get an introduction to the conference and ask questions in an informal and relaxed setting. It’s a great way to get acquainted with others who are attending the conference for the first time and meet some ERICSA board members! Stop by Sunday at 4:00 p.m.

MANDATORY MODERATORS MEETING
If you are a moderator, attendance at this meeting is mandatory. Moderators will be provided information regarding the conference along with specific scripted information that needs to be provided to attendees at each workshop. Moderator meeting times: Sunday at 3:30 p.m. or Monday at 12:00 p.m.

River; however, membership is open to all. As a non-profit organization, ERICSA uses registration fees to further the training for child support professionals. ERICSA also provides its members a voice to Congress and the Uniform Law Commission (National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws) as they debate changes in child support laws. Joining is easy. Attend this conference, and you’re automatically a member for one year.
