The conference organizers have attempted to keep costs as low as possible. In doing so, we have anticipated filling our reserved room block at the Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel as a way of minimizing meeting room costs. Please help us meet our budget, and make your own stay less hectic, by staying at the Hilton. If you stay at either the Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel or at the Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing, but do not reserve your room through the Hilton reservation system set up for this meeting, please make this known to Nancy Williams  so that we may count your room toward the room quota.
