RE: [RC] Silver legacy the support of our convention - Ranelle Rubin


Having been for years on a team which provided seminars all over the country in hotels much like this, let me try to explain how it works:

The meeting rooms and vendor floor needed for convention are VERY expensive! In order for us, as AERC members to have use of these rooms, the hotel requires AERC to reserve a "block" of sleeping rooms. Typically, if many of the expected guests book outside of the block of rooms, it will end up costing AERC for them, or an increase in rates for the meeting rooms.

If any of you want convention to remain a reasonable rate in the future, I suggest you honor Connie's request and book your rooms through the block if possible.

>>>  We know that there are other places less expensive and we know you may find better rates by not booking with the AERC block of rooms but you need to know, that we need your support so book your rooms though the AERC convention block in order to put on the best possible convention now and in the future. You will be supporting AERC by attending the convention and you will also be supporting AERC when you book your room in advance for our block of rooms. We hope to see you there! Connie Caudill <<<
But to me, it does not make sense that their "deal" to AERC is not as good as the basic deal someone can get by on line booking. I'd think that who ever the AERC contact is with the hotel, should at least ask them about it.
