SEAL hosts two annual events each year, our Spring Conference and Fall Conference. In choosing locations and planning our events, our group strives to make each of our meetings different, unique and memorable. Locations in the past have included Dove Mountain in Arizona, The Breakers in Palm Beach, Florida, The Four Seasons in downtown Denver, Colorado and Gran Meliá Resort in Puerto Rico.
On top of educational and informational sessions, our members also enjoy outstanding social events as well as recreational activities like golf and sport shooting at some of the finest facilities available. SEAL events are well attended by our members and provide valuable networking and relationship building opportunities.
The Spring SEAL meetings are generally centrally located in easy “in/out” locations and require only two nights. Generally they open with an evening welcome reception dinner, a full day of business meetings, manufacturer presentations and a guest speaker at lunch, followed by a night “on the town” in the host city. The final day is only a half day long, ending prior to lunch allowing for afternoon departures. Attendance runs 80-100.
The Fall SEAL meetings are typically at resort setting and many members bring companions and families; attendance can run 130-150 people. The meeting is a day longer, with manufacturer presentations divided over three days with open afternoons for members to network or wind down. These are typically on the East or West Coasts.
