Update on Hotel Availability for Annual Conference
Due to the demand for this seminar, our room block is already sold out and there are currently no available rooms at the Lost Pines. We have, however, reserved 30 rooms at the nearby Austin Airport Hilton at a special rate of $159/night. We will be running a shuttle service from the Hilton to the Lost Pines daily, so everyone staying at the Hilton will be able to fully participate in the seminar, parties, golf tournment and the tennis tournaments, etc. (Unfortunitely, on-site recreational activities for families such as the lazy river and pool are limited to Hyatt guests.) To reserve a room at the Airport Hilton, please call 1-800-584-5091. Cut off date for the room rate is May 15.
