I encourage you to book your rooms at the Embassy Suites Charlotte-Concord Golf Resort & Spa if you have not done so already.  You have until February 26th to get the group rate of $144.  The phone number is: 704-455-8200.

Please be reminded of the NCAIR Travel Grant that might help you to attend this year’s conference.  Please complete the Travel Grant Application form to be considered for the NCAIR Travel Grant.  Another wonderful opportunity for presenters is the NCAIR Best Paper Award.  Anyone who presents a paper session and would like to submit their paper for consideration should bring the paper to the conference for judging.  The winner will receive funds from NCAIR to present the paper at SAIR or AIR.

I look forward to seeing you at the conference!
