Business Convention 2017
The 2017 World Service Business Convention will be held June 2 - 4
in Danvers, MA at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel.
02-17-17: The hotel has added a limited number of rooms to the FA room block at a rate of $209/night. We are also working to identify neighboring hotels who may be able to accommodate our group. Please continue to check this section of the website for updates. If you have a reservation you no longer require, please email email@example.com
02-16-17: The Convention Planning Committee is working with the hotel to add more rooms. Please check this section of the website for updates. If you have a reservation you no longer require, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
11-27-16: Hotel rooms are provided on a first-come, first-served basis. To help us plan for the event and better serve you, we ask that you only book one room for you and those who may be staying in the same room. Booking multiple rooms or room blocks lowers the total number of available rooms allotted for the event and prevents other FA members from booking rooms at the special hotel rate.
- Online FA convention registration will remain open from January 6 through March 31. Convention Registration does not include hotel. When registering, you may select a meal plan for yourself and a plan for a non-FA guest. NOTE: You may also select an EXTRA Sunday boxed lunch for yourself and for a non-FA guest.
During the convention, onsite registration will open Friday afternoon and there will be an FA meeting Friday evening. Convention Business Session will begin Saturday morning at approx. 8:45 a.m. and conclude Sunday at approx. 12:30 p.m.
- Please wait to register until you know your FINAL CHOICES FOR MEAL PLAN and registration. You will not be able to change them after payment is made. No meal plans will be sold on-site.
