URGENT - Latest CommSummit Information - Oct. 2, 2012
We have new developments regarding our upcoming CommSummit in Miami, Florida, Nov. 26-28, 2012. Please take note of these changes.
New Hotel arrangements
Due to the fact that our registration surpassed 200 delegates and there is no space in our IAD Headquarter Office, the convention has been moved to Sheraton Hotel by Miami International Airport, and that incurs a higher hotel rate per night. We are handling the reservations directly with the hotel with the delegate list you have provided us.
Cost per single/double room is $109.00 per night. This will be processed through the unions as previously outlined. Please be advised that this is a special rate available to the IAD, and if you or any delegate tries to reserve directly with the hotel, the rate will be significantly higher.
The Sheraton Hotel will provide a shuttle bus to transport you to and from the airport during your stay.
The IAD will cover additional meals during the convention to include:
Monday, Nov. 26 – dinner
Tuesday, Nov. 27 – breakfast, lunch, and dinner
Wednesday, Nov. 28 – breakfast, lunch, and dinner
Thursday, Nov. 29 – breakfast.
Monday, Nov. 26 - 2:00 to 5:00 pm – Registration
7:00 to 9:00 pm – Opening program
Tuesday, Nov. 27 8:00 am to 5:00 pm– Seminars and presentations
Wednesday, Nov. 28 8:00 am to 5:00 pm – Seminars and presentations
5:45 pm- 7:15pm – Dinner and closing program

During the CommSummit, several vendors will be available to display audio/video equipment for your work. If you are interested in taking advantage of this opportunity to purchase any tech gear, please send a list of equipment items you are interested in to Jose Romero, who is IT director at the IAD and who is overseeing this tech expo. Send your list to Jose Romero at email@example.com
Please remember that all charges for registration fees and hotel stay will be sent to your union. Keep in mind that we will not be dealing with individual transactions for registration and hotel stay.
