2017 SCE Pre-Forum Meeting

January 30, 2017

The 2017 SCE Meeting will be held from June 4-6, prior to the ACVIM Forum, at The Alexandrian (http://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/wasmo-the-alexandrian-autograph-collection/). The preliminary program is below. This hotel used to be called Hotel Monaco, but was recently purchased by Marriott, for those of you that have visited this area before. I’m still working with the hotel to determine some of the details of the reservation system, and will send the link later. Single and double rooms are $239/night (about $550 total for two nights, including taxes), and triple and quad rooms will be $259 and $279 per night. I realize that this is a little more expensive than the previous years, but the location is easily accessible from Reagan National Airport (and they have a shuttle!). It’s also right in the middle of historic Old Town Alexandria, and accessible to D.C. via public transportation.

We are planning to continue the tradition of offering registration at no charge to members through the extremely generous support of our sponsors.

There will be more details to come, regarding hotel registration.

Thanks—

Patty
