Location and Accommodations


Attendees were responsible for making their own hotel arrangements.  All meeting sessions for the conferences were held at the Crowne Plaza Resort Asheville, 1 Resort Drive, Asheville, 28806.

We urged attendees to book a hotel room at Crowne Plaza Resort Asheville as revenue from sleeping rooms helps offset other meeting costs and is passed down to attendees in keeping registration rates to a minimum.

A block of rooms had been reserved at the hotel for meeting attendees at the special rate of $139 Double or $159 King plus tax and a government per diem rate of $117 single/double plus tax for those who qualified.  Rates did not include applicable state and local taxes, currently 13%.

Government Per Diem Rate:  A limited number of guestrooms were offered on a first-come first-serve basis at the prevailing federal government per diem (Government ID must be presented at check-in).
