Summer Leadership Institute, June 7-9 - NEW ROOM BLOCK PROCESS!

Reservations for lodging must be made by Wednesday, May 16, 2018.  After this date, any remaining rooms in the block will be released for general sale and the group rate will no longer be guaranteed.

To be fair to all conference attendees, we request that you only reserve the number of rooms that will be utilized.  If you need to make multiple hotel reservations under one name, you have until Friday, May 25, 2018 to substitute those names with registered conference attendees.  After that time, multiple reservations under the same name that have been verified as not registered for the conference will be canceled and used for other attendees on the waiting list.
