Can you believe that it’s almost time for Merge & Converge: Sixteen in ’16? Don’t forget that early registration is ending on September 12! Early registration for the full conference is only $275 for members and $325 for non-members. You can register later, of course, but it’ll cost you an extra $50 (if I were you, I’d save my money for the Midwest Fundraising event also covered in this newsletter).
Speaking of planning ahead – hotel rooms are going quickly, so you might want to go ahead and book your room at the group rate for Medical Library Association Midwest Midcontinental Chapters Annual Meeting as soon as possible. If you wish to register by phone, call 1-800-228-9290 — be sure to mention “Medical Library Association Midwest Midcontinental Chapters Annual Meeting.”
The conference will be held at the Des Moines Marriott, 700 Grand Avenue, Des Moines, Iowa. A block of rooms has been reserved for meeting attendees at the rate of $144 per night, single or double. The last day to book at this rate is September 30, 2016. Wireless high-speed internet will be available in guest rooms for $1/night. Remember that meeting our commitment for the room block is what allows us to have meeting rooms at no cost.
Above is a lovely mural titled “What We Love About Iowa” that Becky Hines took during her last visit. The Merge & Converge Sunday night reception will be taking place at the Iowa Hall of Pride from 6-9pm. A ticket to this event is included with full registration.
