Although there is no registration fee and airfare is covered, participants from neighbor islands will be asked to pay for their room and ground transportation.  Some of you might consider coordinating with colleagues to carpool and share the costs for renting a car.  Room rates start at $139/night, and the link to reserve your hotel is coming soon.*

Air Travel.  If you are coming from a Neighbor Island and need a flight, contact Sharon Billingsley by e-mail to arrange your ticket.  Please see the Air Travel policy HERE.
