  • Seaside Assembly Hall


  • This early registration is for Seaside Institute Members only.

As of 4:00 PM Monday, October 8, 2018, ALL SEASIDE INSTITUTE EVENTS for the week of October 8th through October 14th have been CANCELLED. Rescheduling efforts for these events will begin early next week.

The Seaside Institute believes the safety of our guests, speakers and staff are the most important factor in any decision we make regarding adverse weather conditions and scheduled symposiums. We are closely monitoring the status and potential effects of Hurricane Michael which is currently anticipated to make landfall on Wednesday morning.

At this time the Institute believes it is in the best interest of our speakers, registrants and staff to cancel the Let’s Talk event and our 30A Alliance Advisory Board Meeting scheduled for Thursday, October 11. Our staff will be available via email and phone, however our offices will be closed until deemed safe to reopen in the aftermath of Hurricane Michael.

Any new or updated information will be posted here on this web page as is appropriate.

From the Seaside Institute Board of Directors and Staff- Please be safe through this weather event.

We are pleased to announce as our guest speaker for the October 2018 “Lets Talk” series, Dr. Donald Shoup.  Shoup, a research professor of urban planning at UCLA and the preeminent guru of parking policy, has devoted his 40-plus-year career to understanding the profound economic, geographic, and environmental consequences of parking space over-allocation. The High Cost of Free Parking, Shoup’s 2005 book, is often called “revolutionary” for turning an otherwise dry academic topic into a high-stakes urban issue. 

“Thinking about parking seems to take place in the reptilian cortex, the most primitive part of the brain responsible for making snap judgments about fight-or-flight issues, such as how to avoid being eaten,” Shoup writes in the introduction to his new book, Parking and the City. Dr. Shoup will be sharing his views and offering solutions to the ever-growing 30 A parking problem. You won’t want to miss this event.

The Seaside Institute - working in collaboration with local residents, homeowners, visitors, employers and employees, international experts, community representatives, Dewberry | Preble-Rish, HNTB, ITIC, Walton County, the State of Florida and the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity - is implementing the #30AMobility project. Featuring connected, self-driving, and emission-free vehicles, #30AMobility will increase convenience while reducing congestion and emissions; improving the lives of the people in our extended community.

Come and see the latest updates for #30AMobility, and let your voice be heard.
