Frequently Asked Questions

Q. When I register for the conference, does that mean I’m also registered for the hotel?
A. No! Registration and payment for the conference as well as the hotel are separate. So essentially you have three things to do… 1) register/pay for the hotel; 2) pay for the conference; and 3) register for the conference.
Q. To help with planning my finances, what is the price of a hotel room?
A. The hotel has set the price for a room during this specific conference at $130 per person per night, plus taxes.
Q. If I take a plane, how will I get to the hotel/conference location?
A. When you register, you will be asked to provide flight arrival/departure times. We will have a shuttle available for you.
Q. Is this conference for people of the rank of captain and higher?
A. NO! No rank necessary.
Q. Do you offer any discounts based on the number of registrations from a single agency?
A. We do not offer discounts for multiple registrations, only the reduced rate if you register before July 30.
Q. Does the cost of registration include any luncheons or dinners?
A. Breakfast and lunch on Monday and Tuesday AND breakfast on Wednesday are provided. There will be some evening activities, but most will consist of appitizers. The program provided during registration will have more details, including information if/when meals are on your own.
Q. Parking is always difficult due to the various large events taking place in or near the city. Are any arrangements being made for parking for conference attendees?
A. With the Arts Festival and other events that limit the city's parking, such as the marathon, parking becomes a serious challenge for guests and visitors coming into the city. The hotel does sell out with all home games and cannot guarantee parking through their valet, which is a first come, first served situation. Here is a map providing information on additional parking.
