2) NARSC Conference Hotel
If you have not done so, please book your room at the conference hotel as soon as possible. If you do not plan to stay at the conference hotel, please make sure that you pay the registration surcharge. This is very important. NARSC has a contract with the conference hotel that commits us to filling a minimum number of room nights. If NARSC does not meet its room night quota, it will charged for unfilled room nights. You can book your room directly at https://www.narsc.org/newsite/conference/accommodations/.
If you are looking to save on hotel costs at the NARSC Meetings in San Antonio, we have created a roommate finder that you can use to find someone to share a room with you, at the conference hotel. The roommate finder can be found at https://www.narsc.org/newsite/conference/narsc-2017-roommate-finder/.
