UPDATE - OCTOBER 17, 2018: You may have seen this in the news, the Suncadia Resort caught on fire this weekend. Fortunately, no one was injured. Due to a fire at Suncadia Resort (in their kitchen and conference area) they are unable to host our meeting next week.  We found this out yesterday and spent the day today scrambling to find a new location that has appropriate space and guest rooms.  

We will be moving our conference to the Hilton Bellevue located at 300 112th Avenue SE, Bellevue, WA 98004.  

All hotel rooms booked at Suncadia have been cancelled and deposits refunded by the resort. The Bellevue Hilton has rooms available for us, please use the link below and book your hotel room ASAP.

Room rates for Thurs, Friday, Saturday are $125/night at the Bellevue Hilton

We are very sorry that we will not get a nice resort retreat, but as you can see, it is out of our control.  We are looking forward to hosting a fantastic meeting and look forward to seeing you next week in Bellevue.

The electronic syllabus will be emailed to you in the next few days.

 PRE-REGISTRATION closes on Sunday, October 21, 2018.
