If you are a tax free institution, be sure to provide your federal ID number and bring documentation with you to avoid the extra fees. There are a few other hotels in the area, however the Amway, JW Marriott, and Courtyard by Marriott could not accommodate a block of rooms due to the POAM Conference that is also in town that week. Other locations such as the Homewood Suites by Hilton were nearly $200 per night, group rate.
Parking will be available on campus in the Bostwick Parking Ramp, across Ransom Street from the conference location. There are entrances on the 1st floor and the roof level. Attendees should pull a ticket at entry, and validation tickets will be provided upon check in at the conference. The entrance to the ATC Building is via the catwalk off the roof level of the ramp.
