Hotels

As our organization continues to grow in the future, we hope to be able to offer a conference hotel rate. This year, we ask that guests traveling from out of town make their own hotel arrangements. There are many hotels located near Metro stations in Virginia or DC, as well as many within walking distance to GMU-Arlington, that will make day-of transportation to the conference convenient. Please contact us with any questions.
