Tau Epsilon Rho Law Society to hold its
98th Annual National Convention

Hutchinson Island Marriott Beach Resort and Marina
Stuart, Florida


           TER’s convention committee is pleased to announce that the 98th Annual Tau Epsilon Rho Law Society Convention & Membership Meeting will be held from December 27, 2019 to January 1, 2020 when we will return to the Hutchinson Island Marriott in Stuart, Florida.  This fabulous resort facility is located 45 minutes north of the West Palm Beach airport.  

            All of the rooms reserved for TER will be in the hotel’s Sandpiper Tower, which is right on the beach and pictured above. We have also secured the following superb group room rates for our group:

Sandpiper 1-Bedroom Oceanview Suite $310 per night
Sandpiper Studio Oceanview Suite $295 per night
Sandpiper Studio Resort View Suite $270 per night


            Our rates are also available for the three days prior to the 27th and three days after the 1st and include a full buffet breakfast each day in the Baha Grille, which is the restaurant in the main hotel building, for two adults and two minor children. The normal $15 per day resort fee has been waived for our group. The following amenities are included in our room rate at no additional charge:

High-speed Internet access in guestrooms
Complimentary self-parking (covered parking is available below the tower)
Unlimited local and toll-free calls
Complimentary shuttle transportation throughout the resort
Complimentary golf balls at the resort’s Aqua Driving Range
Unlimited tennis court time, including complimentary use of tennis equipment
Turndown service upon request
****The above rates do not include room tax (currently 11.5%).

Also, there is a $20 per day charge for the use of two chairs and an umbrella on the beach (which is waived if you are a Marriott Gold or Platinum Elite member).

There is no charge for chairs at the Sandpiper Tower swimming pool.

Check-In: 4:00 PM         Check-Out: 11:00 AM


           The convention this year is going to be very low key and informal. Our theme will be “Spending Time with Your TER Old Friends and Family”. We encourage you to bring your family and friends, regardless of whether they are members of TER. (Any member whose TER membership has lapsed is also welcome at the same rate as members). The convention fee of $175 per person applies to all adults and children over 14 attending the convention and we will work out reduced rates for younger children. This fee will include two offsite group dinners at restaurants selected especially for the group by your convention chairman. The convention fee will also be used to cover the cost of our famous hospitality suite which is open every evening during the convention.  For those not paying the convention fee there will be a $25.00 per person charge for the hospitality suite.

           The convention program will also include include one short business meeting of the Tau Epsilon Rho Law Society National Council to which everyone is invited to attend. Please complete the Registration Form (click here for registration form) and use the credit card authorization form (click here for authorization form) to pay your TER convention fee or send your check in the proper amount payable “TER Law Society” to the TER National Office address noted at the bottom of the form.

            For those of you who have not been to the Stuart area, you are in for a treat. Stuart, Jensen Beach, and the surrounding area have grown dramatically since TER was last there in 1994 and 1995 at the Indian River Plantation. Last year we had the best weather ever and a great time exploring the ample restaurants, galleries, shopping and parks, and remember our group is staying in the Sandpiper Towers located directly on the beach.


            We have been allotted a small number of one-bedroom suites, and we expect they will go first and fast. There are also studio suites which are quite spacious. All of the rooms for our group (including the studio suites) have a kitchen area that includes a small refrigerator, microwave oven, stovetop burners, and a coffee maker. The Sandpiper Tower has no rooms that directly connect to each other, but it is possible to get two rooms next to each other if requested in a timely manner.

            Although our room block is being held until November 26, 2019, it is recommended you book your room(s) now so you can get the type of room you desire.  As long as you guarantee your reservation with a major credit card, no further deposit is required. Be advised that the hotel may charge an early departure fee equal to one night’s room and tax if you check out early. This fee only applies if you are already checked into the hotel but check out before your scheduled departure date.

        Reservations for our group can be made by calling Marriott at (800) 775-5936, or online by using the following link:

        Please note that your room confirmation will include the $15.00 daily resort fee.  This charge has been waived by the hotel and removed from your bill at time of checkout.

        ALSO, because this is high season time in Florida, you should make your reservations for air travel and rental cars as soon as possible.
