ACBS 2018 Winter Board of Directors Meeting @ Mission Inn
Mar 22 all-day

Meeting will again be held in conjunction with the Sunnyland Chapter Antique and Classic Boat Festival on Lake Dora.

Closest airport is Orlando International (MCO) serviced by all major airlines. Alternate airport is Sanford-Orlando International with limited scheduled airline service, primarily Sun Country and Allegiant. Both airports are approximately 45 minutes from the hotel.

Hotel will be The Mission Inn. The hotel is in the process of redecorating all their guest rooms and installing new soft goods. Consequently they are increasing our room rate to $150/night plus tax. They are waiving their resort fee. This is a significant reduction from their standard 2018 rate of $209/night.
