AWAG 56th Annual Conference

When you arrive……

* When you arrive at the hotel, please leave your luggage in the car and follow

the signs to AWAG Registration. It is here that you will receive information

about the location of your Area Meeting. You will be sent as a group to register with the hotel. Then you can retrieve your luggage from your vehicle

and check in to your room.

* Please plan your travel time to arrive in time for check-in.

* Eat lunch before arriving at the hotel.

* If you notice that you should have a roommate, and don’t have one, please

notify your Area Representative or the Registration Chair. If the Registration

Chair does not know about it, the hotel will charge you with a daily singlesupplement rate on check out.

* Roommate changes must be reported to your Area Representative or the

Registration Chair.

* The Hotel will ask for a credit card upon check-in to pay for any extras you may incur during your stay. The Conference provides you with breakfast,

lunch and dinner every day except Tuesday.


The Rest of the Process……..

When you arrive at the Conference, you will receive your tickets for the classes you have signed up for. THESE ARE YOUR TICKETS to enter the

classroom, so please do not lose them.
