The WASDA Board of Directors reviewed and discussed several options for the WASDA Annual Meeting (February 21 – 24, 2021) in Naples, Florida. In so doing, the leadership considered many factors, including the following: participation levels, the economy, consumer confidence, travel restrictions, fiscal responsibility, potential liability, possible additional outbreaks of COVID-19 and the tenor of the attendee experience, WASDA noted.

After careful consideration of these and other factors, as well as possible alternatives, WASDA’s leadership has determined that the Annual Meeting will be rescheduled for February 6 – 9, 2022 at The Ritz-Cartlon Golf Resort Naples.

As registration for the WASDA Annual Meeting was not opened, there are no refunds of badge fees due at this time. Likewise, the official WASDA guestroom block at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort Naples was not officially opened prior to this announcement. Any reservations that somehow were made under WASDA’s guestroom block will be cancelled and deposits will be refunded. If you made reservations outside of the WASDA guestroom block at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort Naples or at another hotel in Naples, Florida or the surrounding area, please contact the hotel to cancel your reservations.
