    Im a soon-to-be 5th year heading to the National Conference this summer for the first time and was looking for suggestions from those who have gone in the past as I plan my travel.

    Are the recommended hotels the best bet or is there anything nearby that wont cost me over $100 a night? They are a bit pricey and I dont have any classmates going I could split a room with...Ive got a scholarship as Im going as a delegate from my state's Academy but it wont cover the flight and hotel.

    Is it easy to get by without a rental car?

    Thanks

      As last year's National Conference Resident Chairman - I can say in confidence that the suggested hotels are your best bet - and register soon because we sold out VERY quickly last year. Those who registered late ended up over in the Crown Center area which is walkable and cab-able, but definitely not as close.

      You definitely do not need a rental car. This will be my 5th conference and I have taken a SuperShuttle to and from the airport each time without difficulty. The entire downtown area is also right down the street from the convention center and the recommended hotels. If you want to go to a Royals game (I believe the Twins are in town), there is a Royals bus that shuttles you from the Marriott to the stadium and back for a discount with your ticket.

      Also - as a state delegate, you should try to get in touch with your regional coordinator to seek out other people who are going that would be interested in sharing a room. One year we had 5 in a room and it ended up being very cheap.

        Great, thanks so much for the information. The people from my state going are either females or already have a room with their future residency. Ill just reserve a room and ask around a bit more and see if I can find someone to split it with.

        Thanks again for your help...is there usually good representation from military at the conference residents?
