2014 GDA Annual Meeting

The GDA has selected children's events for ages 5 to 12 directly opposite the Friday Kickoff Breakfast, Saturday President's Dinner, and Sunday Awards Breakfast. This way, GDA members and guests can attend the breakfasts and dinners, while their children can enjoy their own meals and activities in a separate room. Be sure to register your children for their own activities!

Families with children under 5 can utilize Nanny Services provided by The Ritz-Carlton. To find out more about the Nanny Services, please contact The Ritz Carlton Concierge Desk at (904) 321-5019 or ameliaisland.concierge@ritzcarlton.com for a list of local nannies on the island. Rates average $20-25 / hour with a 3-hour minimum (subject to change).
