If you haven't already made reservations at the Santa Clara Biltmore, now is the time to act. CPSA reserves a block of rooms in order to obtain a special rate (Garden Rooms $99.00 + Tax for up to 4 people; Tower Suites $109.00 + Tax for up to 4 people; Japanese/American breakfast buffet included). These affordable rates apply until July 16, 2010 or until the CPSA block is full. We are currently at 80% capacity, so do yourself a favor and book your room soon.
If you are interested in sharing a room with another convention attendee, please let Gemma Gylling know (firstname.lastname@example.org). She will put you in touch with others who are looking for a roommate.
Convention events are also filling up. You can register online at http://cpsa.org/MEMBERSHIP/ConventionRegistration.html until July 17.
We hope to see many of there at the convention, it should be lots of fun. It is, after all, the 20th anniversary of CPSA!
With the exhibition opening less than a week before the convention starts, the award judging will take place later than usual. Notification of award winners will occur as soon after the judging as possible. If you wish to receive your award in person, it would be wise to make reservations in advance.
