|Note from GSA's Meetings Director|
GSA regrets that scheduling conflicts associated with changing the meeting venue (from Chicago to Houston) resulted in meeting dates overlapping with Yom Kippur on 9 October 2008. We hope those who observe the holiday will still be able to attend most of the meeting.
Reservations are now being accepted, and early reservations are strongly encouraged!
Reserve your room online for quickest results. We have plenty of rooms available, but due to the joint meeting agenda, we expect hotels near the convention center to fill up quickly.
We have an exciting guest program for Houston, with many interesting tours available. View all the acitvities on the Guests & Companions page.
Children can enjoy games, story time, arts and crafts, and other fun-filled activities while you're at the meeting in Houston. Learn more about childcare at the annual meeting and register early!
