This is notice that the December 11-13 meeting of the Florida Model Task Force is postponed until a later date yet to be determined. Internal discussions with management at first provided hope that the annual meeting could continue; however, we were informed last night that the meeting will require rescheduling due to the state travel restriction. As reference, on October 16, 2018, the Florida Department of Management Services issued a directive following Hurricane Michael suspending all non-essential travel for state employees, as well as consultants and vendors doing business for the state, for an indefinite period of time.
The Forecasting and Trends Office will reschedule this meeting at the earliest possible date after the travel suspension is rescinded. No date has been provided when the suspension on non-essential travel will be lifted for FDOT staff or FDOT consultants and vendors. The Forecasting and Trends Office will keep you apprised of any further developments.
If you have already made room reservations, please confirm your cancellation – (800) 871-5831. Hotel policy is to allow cancellations up to 72 hours prior to the arrival date. Please let me know if you have any questions.
