New "Family Room" Option for Annual Conference Housing

New "Family Room" Option for Annual Conference Housing

3/19/2014

To accommodate those members who need to bring their children with them to conference, but have never had a way to appropriately register their family for Hofstra housing, we have created a solution: a family room. Not only does this help the member register for an appropriate room for his/her family, it also provides a better headcount for emergency personnel and the local fire department in case of an emergency.

All members who register for a family room will be grouped together in an area of one dorm. Members who order a “family room” will be placed in a suite next to another family, or next to another registered family member(s) by request.

A family room will be one of the larger-sized double rooms, and will cost $80/night. The $80 pays for you, your spouse and up to three minor children staying with you in the room. Please remember that there are only two dorm beds in this room — trying to fit both parents and three larger children (teenagers) would be very difficult. 

For those who have already registered, but would like to switch to a family room:

  • Click the link in the confirmation email you received,
  • When the confirmation screen appears, click the link “Edit my registration,"
  • Make your changes,
  • Then be sure to click “Submit Form” at the very bottom of the screen.
  • If additional funds are due, you would then click the "Pay Now" button on the next screen to pay by PayPal, or send a check for the additional cost.
If you have any questions, please contact Barbara Eastman at 860-633-9721 or website@nyac.com.

We hope that you like this new option, and always appreciate your input about annual conference.
