Ocean Reef Family Retreat
The FICPA Educational Foundation hosts its 6th Annual Family Retreat at Ocean Reef from July 31 to August 3, 2014. Our Ocean Reef Retreat is a casual event with a golf tournament, cocktail parties and a moonlight beach luau. It's all designed to promote the CPA profession, increase awareness and support of the FICPA Educational Foundation, and encourage attendees and their families to get to know each other.
This festive gathering includes talks with our profession’s leaders and late-night storytelling for the kids. Held in one of the most natural and beautiful settings in the United States, this 2,500-acre private equity resort at Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo (just 45 minutes from Miami) is home to 5-star hotel accommodations. Ocean Reef also boasts a spa and fitness center; three championship golf courses; a Har-Tru tennis facility; numerous restaurants and bars; a private airport; a world-class, 150-slip marina; and a watersports island haven that includes a saltwater lagoon, kiddies’ beach, children’s and adult pools, beach volleyball courts and sailing activities. If you’re looking for an offshore adventure, you can enjoy deep sea and flats fishing as well as diving and snorkeling.
The Educational Foundation is committed to making the Retreat affordable, and at $155 per night (and kids stay free in their parents’ room), we believe we’ve succeeded!
The first five events have attracted more than 700 CPAs and their families and have raised more than $65,000 for the Foundation, and helped establish a new $35,000 endowment - the George A. Gulisano Endowment Fund - to help deserving accounting students in Florida.
This year’s retreat includes a reception for incoming 2014-15 FICPA Chair, and a moonlight beach luau dinner with the 2014-15 President of the FICPA Educational Foundation, and our keynote speaker.
