Dear SHEARites, three weeks until we meet in New Orleans for our 43rd annual conference!  You can review the program and register for the conference here.

If you have pre-registered, thank you.  If you haven’t, please pre-register today.  Pre-registration closes tomorrow, 1 July, so if you miss the window you will have to register on-site using a credit card only and pay a $30 supplement.  If you are a graduate student presenting at the conference, your registration is free.  However, you must still register.

On-site conference registration is open from 5:00 to 7:30 on Thursday 21 July at the registration desk in the conference hotel, and continues until Sunday.

If you have not yet made your hotel reservation, please do so today.  The conference rate is available until tomorrow, 1 July and you can make your reservation directly with the Intercontinental by calling (800) 439-4745 or by visiting this siteShared rooms for graduate students are still available at the reduced rate of $99.00/night per person excluding taxes; contact the conference coordinator directly to be booked for this block.  If you do not have a roommate in mind, the coordinator will keep a list to facilitate rooming options.

There are some spots left on the Faubourg Tremé and Chalmette Battlefield tours.  You can still sign up even if you’ve already registered – just return to Ticketleap and add events.

I send you traveling mercies and I look forward to seeing you in New Orleans soon.  If you need anything before then, please email conference coordinator Robyn Lily Davis.
