Beware of Unauthorized Hotel Solicitations

ASHA has been alerted that a housing company has reached out to some ASHA members implying that it is a partner of ASHA or it is ASHA's housing company. ASHA is not using the services of a housing company for the 2017 Connect conferences. Reservations will be accepted directly by the two official hotels contracted by ASHA, the Hyatt Regency New Orleans and the Holiday Inn Downtown Superdome, beginning April 20, 2017. Complete reservation and contact information will be available on this page beginning that day.

Please know that most reputable housing companies do not solicit or initiate contact with you and that entering into financial agreements with non-endorsed companies may have costly consequences. Other companies may not provide the prices, service, and reliability available from the hotels and partners with whom ASHA contracts. If you are contacted by a company that claims to be our housing provider, please immediately e-mail us at  [email protected].

* Pre-conference workshops hosted by the Louisiana Speech-Language-Hearing Association will be held on July 6, 2017, from 1 p.m.–4 p.m. Central time for an additional fee.      

** The PLUS Package includes online access to more than 70 recorded sessions from the three conferences and is available only with full Connect registrations. The exact number of CE credits may change due to presenter cancellations, number of sessions, or technical difficulties. Pre-conference workshops, interactive labs, and poster sessions are not included. Participants cannot earn credit for recordings for sessions for which they claimed credit at the live events. The PLUS Package recordings will be available from August 1, 2017–November 1, 2017, only.
