Networking Opportunities

FAIA's Convention offers many opportunities for attendees to network and unwind, including Wednesday's Young Agents Council Golf Tournament, Thursday's Networking Dinner and  Opening Night Concert, hospitality functions, and Coffee & Connect on Saturday morning. 

Young Agents Council Golf Tournament

The Young Agents Council hosts its annual golf tournament Wednesday June 13, 2018, at the Shingle Creek Golf Club. Proceeds from the tournament benefit the Folds of Honor Foundation, an organization that exists to provide hope of a brighter future for those whose lives have been permanently altered as a result of their service to our great nation.

Thursday's Opening Night

Thursday night starts at 6:30 with a lavish dinner; this is a great time to reconnect with business associates, or make new ones, in a casual setting.

A concert featuring The Rupert's Orchestra—the top party band in the Southeast—kicks off at 8:00 p.m. Both the dinner and concert are included in a full registration.

Thursday Night Concert

About the Rupert's Orchestra

The Rupert’s Orchestra became nationally known for its exciting performances at Rupert’s Nightclub in Atlanta. For over eight years, the band played to packed houses and was voted Atlanta’s best house band every year. At the core of the group is a driving rhythm section accented by a fiery horns and explosive Latin percussion. Fronting the band are four of the hottest vocalists around, each with a unique sound. With a huge and eclectic repertoire, the Rupert’s Orchestra performs everything from current Top 40 hits to Motown, R & B, Classic Rock and Big Band Swing.

Bring the kids, or drop them off at the "Superhero" themed Kids Zone!

Beginning at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, you can drop your children (up to age 12) off at the Kids Zone, where they can create their own superhero mask, cape, and wrist cuffs and then test their superhero skills with tests of strength and agility. Children are encouraged to wear their favorite superhero costume! A kid-friendly buffet dinner is included. The Kids Zone will be staffed by Kid’s Nite Out, a professional and licensed childcare service.
