Lodging & Meals - PLEASE READ!

Upon registration, please book your room and meals. All rooms have a private bathroom and include three meals/day. A VERY limited number of single rooms are available -- if "Sold Out" is indicated, please choose a double room or see the Travel and Lodging page for off-site lodging options.

ALL RATES ARE FOR ONE PERSON. Both occupants in a double room must register separately and pay the double room rate (which is half the total cost of the double room). If second occupant is not attending conference, please use the "Room & Meals Only" registration type.
