Countdown to the Annual Meeting

ASA and CSSA have negotiated discounted hotel rates for you within walking distance of the Baltimore Convention Center.

In order for us to ‘earmark’ enough of these discounted rooms for our Annual Meeting attendees to reserve, we had to sign a contract guaranteeing that a certain amount of our attendees will stay in these rooms (called the “block”). Your choice of hotel affects the Societies’ ability to negotiate future contracts and discounts, as well as fulfillment of our contractual agreement with the hotels. Thus, we kindly ask that if you can, please choose to stay within the ASA and CSSA block.

All discounted hotel rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis. The discounted rooms are available until they are gone or Oct. 10, 2018. Once the block is full or it's after October 10, the hotels may charge higher rates if they have any rooms available. Government rate rooms will be the first to go, so you must reserve early to secure the best location and pricing.
