2021 USSVI National Convention:
The Central Florida & Snug Harbor Base are working together to bring you the 2021 National Convention in Orlando, Florida at the Rosen Shingle Creek® Hotel.
From the Convention Chairman: "As everyone is aware, the Covid-19 Pandemic has had a major impact on our way of life and doing business. It is no different here in Central Florida. The host hotel for our 2021 National Convention, The Rosen Shingle Creek Resort is closed. And they have been closed since April 9th, 2020. As such we are unable to conduct any business with the hotel. We cannot establish pricing for the Holland Club Breakfast, Men’s and Women’s Luncheon or the Banquet. You are not able to make a room reservation at this time because we have not been assigned our group code to secure our convention room rate. The hotel does not anticipate re-opening until late November.
Likewise, some of the businesses we are using for side trips are temporarily closed. Again, we cannot establish pricing and set dates until they are back open and we can conduct business.
Because of the above, we cannot complete the registration form or the Plan of the Week at this time. It is pointless to post to the website an incomplete registration form or Plan of the Week. We are asking for your patience and understanding. Your convention committee is working hard to get this done. We are operating in unprecedented times."

Registration and the hotel room block will be available on the convention website: (Registration is not yet open.)
