March is here and that means its time to GO FISHING FOR SOME GOOD IDEAS!
If you are staying at the Hilton Hotel all rooms have complimentary basic internet. If you want to stay an extra night (Friday night, after the conference ends), you can reserve the extra night at the same conference rate. This is subject to availability.
The hotel offers parking at $6 per night. There are only 100 spots in the parking garage, so it is first come, first served. Please consider carpooling from your school or area. There is additional secure parking across the street for $8 per day, however the lot is locked up at 10 pm nightly.
Another possibility is skip driving all together and take the train.
There will be coffee, tea and water available at the conference and a soda machine. There cannot be any alcohol opened or consumed in the public areas of the hotel.
If you are a presenter, first THANK YOU for your time and talent. Second, you cannot hang anything on the walls. All presentation rooms will have a ledge that materials can be set on, perhaps on a tri-fold board.
Several people have already let me know about their specific food needs. If you have food restrictions please let me know in an email.
Have you ever considered becoming THE Area One Representative? This is a perfect chance to be involved in a great organization. You can self-nominate or have a friend nominate you. We will be voting during our area meeting. I have greatly enjoyed working with our WACA Board - they are amazing group of people - kind, smart and funny.
Make sure you bring contact information for vendors and a little extra cash for our WACA Store - there will be some resources and hard to find items that you will want to take home with you.
If you would like to bring items for our area give-away baskets this is how it works. For every item you bring in you get a ticket for a random drawing to take the whole basket during our last meeting on Friday. Our give away baskets are:
🍷 & 🍺 ADULT BEVERAGES
As always if you do not want to receive these emails please let me know with a quick reply and I will take you off the email list. If you know of anyone that should be receiving these emails and is not - please let me know so I can contact them.
If you have any questions or comments please email me!
I'm excited to see you in less than two weeks!
