      Yes! In order to keep costs low for participants we are holding the workshop in our partner district, St. Charles Parish, in a PD facility in Luling Louisiana.

      Participants are encouraged to book accommodations at hotels near New Orleans International Airport in Kenner, Louisiana. Shuttles to and from the conference location from the below hotels will be provided as well as transportation for an evening in the downtown French Quarter on Saturday May 26th.

      Country Inn and Suites has offered the conference rate (mention CCSSM) of $82 plus tax per night for either a room with two double beds, or a king suite if reservations are made before May 2nd. Contact the hotel directly: 504-305-1501

        But the Country Inn says they do not have a contract to transport us from the hotel to the “PD facility in Luling”–what ever that means. Can you give us the actual address of the workshop PLEASE, or instructions on where to find out about the transportation?
        Thanks!

    Any chance of sponsoring another workshop during the summer instead of waiting to the fall?

    Lynne,
    Registered participants should have received an email last week detailing the location and shuttle schedules to the venue this weekend. The location is:
    12727 Highway 90
    Luling, LA 70070
    And shuttle buses (through an outside company, not the hotel) will be leaving hotels this afternoon at either 2:15 or 2:30 depending on the hotel.
    Looking forward to seeing you this weekend!
