Beware of Interior & Balcony Lights after 9pm

As a reminder, sea turtle nesting season started May 1st. It is very important to keep Marco Island Beach DARK at night for the turtles and hatchlings. So please remember, after 9 p.m. • Exterior balcony lights are to be turned off • Curtains and blinds should be drawn • All beach chairs and tents should be removed from the beach and holes covered

MARCO ISLAND, Fla. — Sea turtles on Marco Island needed a little help after they became disoriented. Wildlife officials want to remind you that if you live on the beach, you should turn off your lights. Hatchlings can become disoriented by the light as they make their way to the water. If you come across any stranded sea turtles on Marco, you can call the police department 239-389-5050.

Message from President

The last year and a half have been one of the most challenging times not only for our members but also for our country and the world in general. Gratefully, most of our members are considered essential and have managed to not only survive but to thrive where others have struggled. I attribute this to the caliber of professionals and businesses that make up CAMMI!

It’s also the reason I consider myself privileged to be associated with CAMMI and the reason I am honored to serve as your President for the 2021-2022 term. Since I last served as President over 20 years ago back in 1999-2000, I have seen CAMMI grow by leaps and bounds. This is all due to the commitment and hard work of the previous Board of Directors and the incredible support that we have received from our Associate Members.

Looking forward I want to assure you that your current Board of Directors will be working hard to continue to provide enjoyable and rewarding Networking and Continuing Education opportunities for all our members.

Please reach out to me or any of our Board Members if we can be of service to you. We always welcome your comments, input and suggestions.

Al Diaz, President
