As of April 13 the conference hotel is fully booked; there is not a wait list, but feel free to call the hotel directly to check current availability.

Shuttle service will be available from both the Inn at Patrick Square and The Abernathy to the Madren Conference Center for conference participants.  There are limited spaces remaining at both Inns, so it is best to make these arrangements at your earliest convenience.
