Unforgettable Location

Join us at the enchanting and historic Jekyll Island Club Hotel for this year's conference, a gem nestled in Jekyll Island, Georgia. This picturesque island, conveniently located between Savannah, Georgia, and Jacksonville, Florida, offers a tranquil escape on the Georgia coast.

Historic Grandeur Meets Modern Luxury

Delve into the rich history of the Jekyll Island Club Hotel, a sanctuary that began over a century ago as an exclusive haven for America's elite. The likes of Morgan, Pulitzer, Rockefeller, and Vanderbilt once graced its halls. Today, you too can bask in the splendid mix of natural charm, architectural elegance, and top-notch service that once catered to these notable figures.

A Legacy of Distinction

The hotel's storied past is a tapestry of American history. In the late 1880s, it emerged as the winter haven for the nation's wealthiest, marking it as the world's most exclusive club at the time. It hosted pivotal moments, including the birth of the Federal Reserve System in 1910 and the pioneering transcontinental phone call in 1915.
