Welcome to the SEISP Conference 2017
Early registration is now open for the GAPPI Southeastern Investigative and Security Professional Conference, April 30 through May 2, at the beautiful Jekyll Island Club on Georgia’s golden coast. Ranked among the top 500 resorts in the world by Travel & Leisure, the Jekyll Island Club Hotel is situated on an unhurried, unspoiled barrier island along Georgia’s spectacular Atlantic coast. Details regarding registration, sponsorship, events and speakers can be found on the SEISPC.org page. This will no doubt be the biggest and best training event in GAPPI’s history and is sure to attract attendees and vendors from all over. Come, bring your family, and enjoy time with other investigative and security professionals while earning 12 to 16 continuing education credit hours before it is time to renew your Georgia license later this year. Hurry and register now as early registration closes on April 14, then prices will increase. Early registration prices are valid for active and associate GAPPI members as well as members of other state and national professional organizations.
The SEISP Conference is open to all investigative and security professionals as well as students and law enforcement nation-wide and internationally. At SEISP you will have the opportunity to meet and network with other professionals in your industry as well as attend training sessions which qualify for the continuing education credits as required by the Georgia Board of Private Detectives and Security Professionals for re-licensing in 2017.
Conference registration will begin at 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 30, 2017 followed by the President's Reception (included in your conference registration) from 7:00 until 9:00 p.m. in the gardens overlooking the river outside the hotel. Plan to come early on Sunday and take part in one of the pre-conference activites to include a golf scramble, firearm requalification at a nearby shooting range or a 5 hour pre-conference seminar by Diana Garren (all at a charge separate from the conference).
By request, Diana L. Garren, CEO of True Perceptions, Inc. will be hosting her seminar on "Proven Strategies that Retain Clients and Gain Additional Business” (at a separate cost from the conference).As business owners we all want to run a successful business and that takes locating and retaining clients. Sign up to attend as Diana uses her 25 years of experience to help members of our profession create winning strategies and business models that will help increase profitability and ensure client longevity. Diana's seminar qualifies for 5 CEUs.
Take advantage of GAPPI conference room rates and the beautiful setting and bring the family on Friday for a little more vacation time. The island boasts 63 holes of golf on award winning greens and the hotel has a pool, a shuttle to a private beach pavillion, as well as activites like geo-caching and dolphin sighting tours for the kids. If you have never explored Georgia's Golden Coast, there is no better time. From Jekyll, it is just a short drive across the bridge to visit beautiful St. Simons and Sea Island or take the ferry for a day trip to wild and historic Cumberland Island.
The SEISP Conference will be held in the Morgan Center. The Mogan Center is the hotel’s newest addition. Originally constructed in 1929 as an indoor tennis court for guests of the Jekyll Island Club at the turn of the century and then again during the modern hotel era after its renovation in 1986. Though the facility was closed in 1990 due to disrepair, a joint venture between the owners of the Jekyll Island Club Hotel and the Jekyll Island Authority to renovate the historic indoor court as an adaptive reuse as a conference center is the focal point in the island's National Historic Landmark district. The ground level boasts 4900 sq. ft. of flexible space with a second story mezzanine with 900 sq. ft. of space. The Morgan Center also features a foyer and outdoor terrace as well as a brand new state-of-the-art catering kitchen. All perfect for our conference.
