by Marianne Braverman (staff) on Mon, Nov 17, 2014 at 11:09 am

Hi everyone,

Attached you will find the 2015 Midwinter Meeting room assignments. Conference services has really tried to honor any location requests however due to the limited amount of meeting space in Chicago, not all requests were possible. In a few instances they may have had to change your meeting set in order to accommodate your meeting.

Hi everyone,

Attached you will find the 2015 Midwinter Meeting room assignments. Conference services has really tried to honor any location requests however due to the limited amount of meeting space in Chicago, not all requests were possible. In a few instances they may have had to change your meeting set in order to accommodate your meeting.

Speakers and members are not authorized to making room set changes in the Convention Center and hotels. We set the rooms to accommodate ALL groups and not only one group.  Any fees to reset a room will be charged to the sponsoring group should this occur.

Below is the list of convention center/hotel abbreviations:

MCP – McCormick Place West                     
BLACK – Renaissance Blackstone
FAIR – Fairmont Chicago
HIL – Hilton Chicago
HRM – Hyatt Regency McCormick
HYATT – Hyatt Regency Chicago *
SHER – Sheraton Chicago
SWISS – Swissotel Chicago

*Headquarters Hotel

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.  

Thank you and we look forward to a great Midwinter Meeting in Chicago!

Best,

Discussion How to promote ASCLA?

by Elizabeth Marshak on Thu, Jul 17, 2014 at 12:27 pm

What has been done that was successful in the past? What didn't work?

Is there a way to encourage more interaction at the ASCLA socials?  I noticed at the ones I have attended at Midwinter and at the last 2 conferences it seems that people stick to their own groups. That can be hard for new people who don't want to interrupt or intrude.

I'm new to Membership Promotion and I am the sole committee member.  Help is greatly appreciated.
