        • Check-in / registration starts at 8:00 a.m.
        • It will be on the 4th Floor Regions Community Resource Room of Samford University's Cooney Hall (Brock School) of Business).  
        • Assume that check-in / registration will take 5 - 10 minutes, depending on when you arrive.

        • The AAFP Summit sessions start at 9:00 a.m.
  • Shuttle Service
        • Visitor parking spaces in front of the Samford School of Business (#37 on map) are extremely limited. The parking deck across from the Business School (#38 on map) fills up quickly. It is highly recommended that you use the free shuttle offered by the Alabama AFP.
        • Campus security requires the use of a parking pass. They can levy fines or tow cars that do not have a parking pass displayed.
        • Shuttle service will start at 7:45 a.m. 
        • Assume it will take 15 minutes for the shuttle (trolley) to do a round-trip. Please plan accordingly.
        • Go to the Track/Soccer Stadium Parking Lot at the GPS coordinates of 33.458611,-86.795278 or 33°27'31.0"N 86°47'43.0"W
The Soccer Stadium parking lot is across Lakeshore Drive. Do not go in through the main gates of the Samford Campus. This parking lot is closer to Homewood High School.
Track Sign
          • Please display the parking pass in your dash area and allow a little extra time on arrival for parking & shuttle. 
          • Although Samford University has its own shuttle for students, the Samford shuttle has a different route. AAFP contracted with Rare Transportation to provide an all-day shuttle service between the Soccer Stadium Parking Lot and Cooney Hall (Brock School of Business). It will be an air-conditioned trolley to differentiate it from the Samford shuttle. Look for AAFP signs.
          • If you would rather walk and not wait for the trolley, here is a campus map. Look for #37 (Cooney Hall). 
          • Once you arrive at the Business School (Cooney Hall), please proceed to the 4th Floor Regions Community Resource Room.  
        • If you need to leave early, look for the board member assigned to assist with the shuttle so that he/she can call the shuttle to pick you up. Due to space limitations, the shuttle will be parked at the soccer field in between the first and last sessions. Assume it will take at least 10 minutes for the shuttle to arrive.
