What You Need to Know

When:   We’ll start at 1:00 on Friday March 15 and end the formal meeting at 5:00 on Saturday.  For those staying over Saturday night there will be informal networking, time for tourist activities (see What To Do  below), and we’ll have brunch on Sunday.

Where:  The Hyatt Hotel at Union Station.  For reservations, call 800-233-1234 and tell them you’re with ADPTC.  (Since we’re responsible for a minimum number of rooms, be sure and tell them you’re with ADPTC.)

   Union Station is a renovated  railroad station with shops and a great food court.

Weather:  As Mark Twain said, if you don’t like the weather, just wait a while.  Normally St. Louis has temperatures between 50-60 degrees in March and April, but it’s unpredictable.  I’ll email the listserv the week before to let you know what they are predicting (but that’s still no guarantee!)
