We have blocked guest rooms for Wednesday, May 21st, and Thursday, May 22nd. Rates are: single occupancy, $120.00; double occupancy, $130.00; triple occupancy, $140.00; and quadruple occupancy, $150.00. Reservations can be made by calling The Hyatt on Capitol Square at 614-228-1234. Identify yourself as being with OPAA to get our rate. The cutoff date for our block of rooms is April 30th.

The registration fee of $150.00 covers handout materials, continental breakfast and lunch both days, and refreshments at breaks. Please submit your registrations to OPAA by May 15th (earlier if possible). Because we must commit early to the expenses involved in producing the handout, cancellations through May 19th will be assessed a $35.00 fee, and the handout materials will be sent to you. Cancellations after May 19th (other than emergencies) will be assessed a total of $85.00. In addition to the handouts, this will help to defray the cost of food guarantees required at that time.

If you can only attend one day, the following fees apply: $100.00 registration; $35.00 assessed for cancellation through May 19th; and $50.00 assessed for cancellation after May 19th.

NOTE: If any registrant has special dietary needs, contact Delores at 614-221-1266, so that advance arrangements can be made.
