Please Note! It has come to our attention that an entity/individual not affiliated with NGFA, identifying himself as "Leo Martin," is soliciting NGFA members to make hotel reservations on their behalf for the upcoming Country Elevator Conference (sometimes identified in the solicitations as NGFA's "annual conference.") We are advised that on at least on some occasions, the company is misrepresenting itself as working on NGFA's behalf or in response to the request of trade show exhibitors.  Neither is true.  Please be aware that NGFA and its trade show exhibitors have NOT contracted - nor in any way affiliated itself - with "Leo Martin" or any other third-party in this capacity. Before booking your reservations through a third-party, NGFA highly recommends comparing the options available through the online booking link on the NGFA website and the meeting registration form or directly with the Chicago Marriott Downtown. NGFA is pressing its concerns with the third-party involved and regrets any confusion, deception and intrusion upon NGFA members.
