Dear Colleagues,

This is a quick plea both for your convenience and for the good of our community!
Please book in SRCD's room block. Staying there not only enhances your convenience and chances to network, it also enables us to reach our contracted room-booking requirements. SRCD’s meeting expenses (and of course, ultimately, attendees’ registration fees) would be astronomical if we could not negotiate rates linked to hotel use. Financial penalties increase with each registrant who stays outside an officially contracted SRCD hotel. Reduce your registration costs  by taking advantage of the housing discount today.

Thanks for taking our collective good into account as you make your plans. We look forward to seeing you in Philadelphia!

Lynn S. Liben, SRCD President
