I am planning on having a meeting of all of us in town on the day before the NBF. I will set up a poll to determine what time works best for most of us. I realize that those coming long distances may need to arrive two days early if they want to attend and that, for some, this will not be possible.

At very long last, the reservation link for the authors, Roadmap to Reading participants and other invited guests to make NBF hotel reservations is finally ready. This year’s hotel will be the Cambria Suites Convention Center at 899 O Street NW, Washington, DC, 20001. The room rate is $169 plus applicable taxes (guaranteed until August 1, 2022 OR when the room block is full, whichever comes first.) The block runs from Wednesday, August 31 through Monday, September 5. All stays on those days will be $169/night. If individuals wish to check in earlier than 8/31 or stay later than 9/5, normal rates will apply. Cancellations made seventy-two (72) hours prior to check-in date shall be at no cost.

I know not everyone has funding secured yet, but you can make a reservation now and cancel at no charge if done three days in advance, should you not attend. This is the same hotel near the convention center we have used in the past.
