Registration Information

 Due to COVID-19, the Aquatic Weed Control Short Course has been rescheduled

Mark your calendar now for our NEW DATES of October 27-30, 2020 at the same location, the Fort Lauderdale Marriott Coral Springs Hotel, Coral Springs, FL. We truly regret these unfortunate circumstances, but the health and well-being of our attendees, employees and the overall community comes first. We are grateful to the sponsors, speakers and attendees who support the Short Course and we look forward to renewing your participation during the new dates.

If you were registered to attend, we will be emailing you a link to an online form to confirm whether you wish to transfer your current registration to the new dates or cancel your participation.

If you are a sponsor, we are grateful for your ongoing support and will be in touch to renew your commitment and dedication to the next Short Course.

If you were not previously registered for the Short Course and would like to attend during the new dates, stay tuned! We will post updated registration deadlines and fees soon.

Due to the sheer volume of COVID-19 induced logistics we are managing at this time, it may be a while before we are able to connect with each of you, so we appreciate your patience and cooperation as we work through these complexities.

On behalf of,

Lyn Gettys, PhD, Short Course Organizer and UF/IFAS Associate Professor of Agronomy
