Announcements

  • AARC Summer Forum Schedule Update

    As you may be aware, the City of Fort Lauderdale announced Thursday, July 18 that a water main was damaged resulting in a temporary loss of water in the city and some surrounding areas. The Marriott Harbor Beach was therefore required to evacuate July 18 reservations. As of July 19, the water service has been restored to Fort Lauderdale water customers. A temporary repair has been completed of the 42-inch water main that supplies raw water from the City’s wellfields to the Fiveash water treatment plant. With a temporary repair in place, crews will focus on the permanent repair. A boil water notice is in effect for all water customers until further notice, so it is advised not to drink tap water while visiting. Please note, the Summer Forum Pre-Course Workshop and AARC Summer Forum meeting are currently planned to take place with minimal schedule changes beginning Friday, July 19 – Monday, July 22. 

    Current time and location changes are as follows:

    Friday, July 19

    Course #1 — National Board for Respiratory Care (NBRC)
    Examination Management: Points an Educator Can Consider

    3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. ET

    Room: Grand GH

    As for Marriott Harbor Beach reservations July 19 and beyond, we have been assured that attendee hotel reservations will be in-tact. However, due to the circumstances, we recommend that you please contact the hotel to confirm the status prior to your arrival.

    If you have further questions, please contact AARC’s customer service at (972) 243-2272 or the Marriott Harbor Beach at (954) 525-4000. We look forward to seeing you in Ft. Lauderdale!
