Special note about Hotel Rooms for Monday night
We generally reserve a smaller number of rooms for the last day of the conference (Monday night) because many of you depart on Monday afternoon. There ARE rooms available at the conference rate for Monday April 28. If you find that you are not given the conference rate for that night, or if you have any other problems with the hotel reservation process, please contact our Conference Planner directly and she will sort things out for you:
