Southeast

Upcoming Meeting:

The Southeast Section 2018 meeting will be held in Lexington, KY at the Embassy Suites Hotel on March 16th & 17th, 2018.  The hotel is reserving us the rooms from March 13th through March 18th, in case anyone wants to come early or stay a little later. The room rate is $139.00 per night. With that rate, they offer a complimentary cooked to order breakfast served daily (buffet with a made to order omelet or eggs station) and a two-hour evening reception held nightly from 5:30pm – 7:30pm (complementary beer & wine) for all registered hotel guests.

Below is the link that will take you directly to our sight for Hotel reservations. The cutoff date for reservations at the discount rate is February 12th 2018 and there are only 20 rooms reserved. So, get your reservations ASAP!

Here are some instructions when you make your hotel reservations on line. When you bring up the sight it will have the earlier date of (arriving on the 13th & departing on the18th). Apparently, the sight only works for our actual room block (arriving on the 15th & departing on the18th) at the rate of $139.00 per night.  If you want to come in on the 13th & depart on the 18th or 19th you have to call Tina Coors at 859-455-5110 & she will manually put your reservation in for you to make sure you get our room rate of $139.00 per night.
