The Florida Bar International Law Section Retreat will be held on September 29 – October 1, 2017, at the stunning Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa in Bonita Springs, Florida.  Situated along the Gulf of Mexico in Southwest Florida, between Naples and Ft. Myers, the resort offers a multitude of amenities and activities including a secluded beach island, hydro-grid tennis facilities, 18-hole golf course designed by Senior PGA Tour Champion Raymond Floyd, a 19,000-sq. ft. full-service spa, a 5,000 square-foot lagoon pool with a 140 foot water slide and lap pool and six restaurants.  As with past Retreats we will do important executive council and committee work and a lot of socializing.

We welcome families and significant others and are looking for proposals for our second annual ILS Talks modeled on the TED Talks known to many of you.  Please be on the lookout for registration details in next week’s Gazette and be sure to contact Chair Arnie Lacayo ( if you are interested in giving an ILS Talk on or before Friday, September 8.
