Countdown to the Beach
As the omicron variant continues to dominate the news and our daily lives, we continue to monitor the situation closely. We are so glad that we can now attend the conference in person and wish to be careful in our meeting and clear about how we are addressing safety. Be assured that safety is a priority, and we will do everything possible to minimize the potential spread of COVID-19. In general, we ask that everyone be aware of and respect these prevention policies for the good of everyone attending. This means being aware and allowing adequate spacing in lines for check-in, food service, elevators, etc.
The 26th USF Social Marketing Conference will be heading back to the beach in 2022! This conference is designed for all who are interested in using the social marketing framework for social good. The conference will be held at Clearwater Beach, Florida from May 27-28, 2022. A training academy will be held right before the conference on May 25-26, 2022 to provide in-depth training on the social marketing process.
The Sheraton Sand Key is sold out of sleeping rooms and our alternate hotel block has expired.
