Overview | Travel/Hotel


Hotel reservations for all attendees will be made by and billed directly to NWACC. Attendees will need to provide a credit card at check-in to guarantee payment for any incidental charges. NWACC will cover room charges for the nights of Oct 18 and 19; attendees staying additional nights will be responsible for those room charges (unless flight schedules make an additional night's stay necessary, in which case NWACC will cover the expense). Please contact Molly (molly@nwacc.org) if you have questions about your hotel reservation.
