The Minneapolis Marriott is holding preferred reservations for NASAD Annual Meeting participants through 5:00 p.m. CDT on Friday, September 20. After that date, room assignments will be made on a space-available basis only, and the NASAD group rate may not be offered. Prospective attendees are encouraged to make reservations as soon as possible and cancel later if necessary. (Please review hotel policies regarding the time frame for cancellation without penalty.) Once the hotel reaches capacity, or the NASAD room block is filled, other accommodations will need to be secured. Unfortunately, NASAD is not able to assist participants in finding alternate lodging.
