AHEAD 2017: Announcements

Conference Registration

Roommate Referral

If you are looking for a roommate during the conference to reduce costs, please e-mail the following information to Jane Johnston, Member Services Coordinator:

Planned check-in date;
Planned check-out date;
Telephone number; and
Email address

Conference organizers will collect a list of those interested and distribute it to each interested person in early June, 2017. Individuals will then be responsible for contacting each other and arranging shared housing. The deadline to submit your information for inclusion in the roommate referral program is May 26, 2017.

Please be aware, the information you supply will be shared with all who register for the roommate referral program. The information you provide will NOT be kept private, and AHEAD can make no guarantees of successful shared housing arrangements.

Volunteer & Session Moderating Information

Are you friendly and energetic? Willing to ‘host’ a concurrent session as a Moderator? Do you want to add depth and richness to your Conference experience? If so, you should become a volunteer!

We are looking for volunteers to help meet and greet conference attendees, distribute conference materials, support the Silent Auction, assist with hospitality events, and assist with a variety of other activities.

If you are interested in spending a couple of hours (literally, just 2) volunteering at the conference, please indicate your interest when you register. The volunteer coordinator will contact you prior to the conference to arrange details. Thank you in advance!

Want a Lift from time to time?

While the distances conference activities and meeting spaces are not great, we realize that some folks may want a lift from time-to-time. Conference organizers have arranged to have a “fleet” of a dozen scooters available for check-out at the conference registration area from Monday morning through Friday afternoon. Scooters will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis and signed-out for up to four hours at a time at no cost to attendees.

Key Dates to Remember

  • Save Money! Register (even if you can’t pay) by May 31, 2017 to get the very lowest registration rates.
  • Please be sure to make your requests for reasonable accommodation requests by Friday, June 16, 2017
  • AHEAD has negotiated a great rate at the Orlando Hilton, where all conference activities will take place. However, the group rate will expire on June 16, 2017 or whenever the blocks sell out; whichever comes first. Please book your room as early as possible.

Discount Park Tickets

Conference Participants can purchase discounted tickets to area parks by visiting the Visitor Center. Attendees will need to have their conference badge to get the convention price.
