NERGC CONFERENCE HOTELS NEARLY FULL, BUT THERE ARE SOME ROOMS

Beginning last Thursday, February 26 some folks trying to make hotel reservations found that the NERGC room blocks at both of the conference hotels were full. Since that time there have been a few cancellations at the Courtyard by Marriott, and we've been able to add some rooms at the Biltmore. If you register at the hotel of your choice right away, you should be able to get a room.
