Fees and Payment

    Regular Rate: $300 (postmarked or entered online after July 8, 2016).

    Registration fee covers all refreshment breaks, two tickets for the reception on Thursday evening, one Friday luncheon ticket and all printed materials.

    Payment Options

    Using this online registration module, you can pay with a Visa or MasterCard. Once registered, you will receive your conference confirmation immediately via email. (You must supply your email address to receive your confirmation.) Emailed registration confirmations include your registration information, payment amount and registration number for your reference.

    NOTE: Online registration is subject to the same deadlines as regular registration. If you select to pay by check, your payment must reach the FMAA office postmarked no later than July 8, 2016 to qualify for the early registration fee ($275). Otherwise, you will be required to submit payment at the regular registration rate ($300).


    In the event prepaid registrants find it impossible to attend the seminar, an email or fax received in our office to that effect by 5:00 p.m., Friday, July 15, 2016, will authorize a full refund. Prepaid registrants not canceled by 5:00 p.m., Friday, June 26, will be included in the guaranteed attendance count. Because of the need to give advance guarantees, no refunds can be made after July 15, 2016, or for early departure from the seminar.

    Registering by Mail

    If you prefer to use a physical registration method (rather than this online registration module), please fill out a registration form and return it with all registration fees to the Florida Municipal Attorneys Association, P.O. Box 1757, Tallahassee, Florida 32302-1757, or email to or fax to (850) 222-3806. If you have any questions, contact Tammy Revell or Melanie Howe at (850) 222 -9684.
