Reserve Your Table Now!

On Tuesday, May 13, 2014 the Florida west Coast Chapter of ASIS International will be holding its annual Law Enforcement & Security Officer Awards Luncheon at the DoubleTree Hotel, 4500 West Cypress Street in Tampa. All too often the accomplishments of law enforcement officers and private security officers are forgotten or ignored by the public, clients, and the media. This event recognizes law enforcement officers and security officers from the Tampa Bay area who have performed selfless acts that are above and beyond the call of duty. We want them to know that their efforts are indeed appreciated and have not gone unnoticed.

In order to give companies and agencies an opportunity to show their staff that there are others who appreciate their service, we are selling tables for this event. Each table holds eight people. Typically, four seats are for those you choose to bring, and four seats are reserved for law enforcement and security officers and their parties. If you would like more or fewer seats for your guests, please let us know. The table reservation price of $300 (two tables for $550) includes all eight lunches and a listing in the luncheon program and the chapter newsletter that your company or agency is a sponsor. There are a limited number of tables available, and they will be assigned on a first come/first served basis.

Thank you for your support of this worthwhile event. You may register and pay on the chapter website, or the paper registration form may be either mailed or emailed, to Ozzie Patino at the address or email address listed at the bottom of the reservation form. Please call Ozzie at 813-464-9009 if you have any questions.

Please note
that tickets will not be issued; please notify your guests to let the ushers know that they are sitting at your company’s table.
