Message to Attendees: ARELLO has made every effort to secure the best possible group nightly room rate for you at this event.

ARELLO will incur costs if the association falls short of its minimum room block guarantee. Please help ARELLO keep the costs of this event as low as possible by booking your housing needs at the designated host hotel and in the ARELLO┬« room block.  Reserving outside the contracted room block may jeopardize ARELLO's ability to meet its contracted obligations and to keep registration fees to a minimum.
