Lodging

Some suggested hotels in the area include:

When should I make my hotel reservations?

We have contracts with hotels, but our cut-off dates are well in advance of the conference so that CDM will not be responsible for any unreserved rooms. Be sure to make your reservations early for group rates.

You are welcome to find other hotels in the area.

Are children allowed to attend? Is childcare available?

We are asking that no children (excluding infants) attend the sessions. There will not be childcare at the church.

What is the refund policy?

Registrations are transferable without penalty, but they are not refundable.

Can I transfer my registration?

Yes! You are able to transfer your registration. Transfers are the responsibility of the two parties involved. CDM is not responsible to arrange payment for transferred registration. Please email Kathy Wargo with updated information.

When should I make my hotel reservations?

We have contracts with hotels, but our cut-off dates are well in advance of the conference so that CDM will not be responsible for any unreserved rooms. Be sure to make your reservations early for group rates.

May I stay at a location other than the recommended hotel?

Because the Conferences are being held at local churches, we are not committed to filling a certain number of hotel rooms with our contract. You are welcome to stay at someone’s home or at a different hotel. The rates we have contracted with the hotel are lower than typical rates.

I’m flying to the Conference. How do I get from the airport to my hotel and to the church?

It would be best to rent a car if flying because there is no mass transportation to the hotel or church.

If a Conference is filled, is there a waiting list?

Yes, if we fill a conference, you may contact Kathy Wargo to put your name on a waiting list.

What if my question hasn’t been answered?

You may contact Kathy Wargo with additional questions.

Please note: Registration fees are NOT refundable, but they are transferrable to someone else for conference registration at the same conference location. If you are transferring your registration, please send the name and email address of the person being transferred to so that we can include her in our mailings. Send information to: kwargo@pcanet.org.
