DIFFICULTY BOOKING CONFERENCE RATES?
NCECA has received a limited number of reports indicating that a few individuals have been informed that conference rates were not available at the listed hotels. This should not be the case at the current time, but room blocks may be filled as we get closer to the close of early registration. If you have a registration in our conference hotels that do not correspond with the posted rates, or have had trouble booking please contact dori@nceca.net. Include any reservation details you may have by pasting or attaching to your message.
