Online RSVP Required for All Members of the All-Florida Team

In order to RSVP, you must visit and complete the requested information. All members of the All-Florida Academic Team must complete this information, even if you are not planning to attend the events in Tallahassee. This will ensure that we communicate important information about potential scholarships and send medallions/resolutions to the proper addresses.

The website will provide you with the opportunity to RSVP for yourself and a maximum of two (2) guests. You and your guests will not be charged for the luncheon. However, if you or guests later find that you are unable to attend after submitting the RSVP, please contact Lesley Hafford to cancel your RSVP. This will help us minimize any unnecessary costs.

Please complete this online RSVP no later than Monday, March 9, 2009.
