   I am a First Time Convention Attendee!


Early Bird Rates are valid through March 1, 2023. Late Fee rates begin on May 21, 2023.

In an effort to better portray the actual cost of convention registrations, the ACC-GTM has changed the structure of our registration fees.
There are now both unsubsidized and subsidized registration fees for all attendees who register by the various deadlines.
We hope that those with financial means will register under the "unsubsidized" or full fee for convention, which better reflects the
actual costs of meals, scholars, transportation, audio-visual, etc. The subsidized fees are directly underwritten by your colleagues.
Donations made to the convention underwriting fund offset the actual convention costs and help make convention more affordable.
We invite you to register using whichever fee you are comfortable.

The registration fee includes all group meals, all workshops, and the final banquet.

Participation is an important aspect of the Convention, and we will do our best to include as many people as possible.
To be considered for a particular role in the convention, please register as early as possible.
Note that not all volunteers will be chosen to participate.
We will attempt to notify all participants as soon after the early bird deadline as possible.

Those members who have not taken a significant role in either tefilah, concert, or major program at an ACC/GTM
convention or URJ National Biennial in the past two years will be given first priority.

   Voice Part
   I would love to be involved in Tefilah. I am particularly skilled at:
   I volunteer to accompany Tefilah
   I play the following instruments
   Lead Hamotzi
   Birkat Hamazon
   I volunteer to accompany another convention activity
   I'd love to help out and moderate a workshop (assist workshop presenter(s) with logistical needs, introduce presenter, etc.)
   Professional Theater Acting Background


As a reminder, the ACC-GTM Convention Committee and Ayelet Tours have worked hard to secure a fair price for the hotel block during
our convention. Although a lower rate may be available on certain discount hotel websites, when you book outside of the Convention
process, you risk the Convention's ability to fulfill our financial commitment to the hotel and therefore risk the Convention possibly
needing to pay for empty hotel rooms that are not needed or other hotel services and meeting space. Based on our committed
occupancy, the hotel gives us the use of meeting space at no extra charge. When we do not fulfill our committed occupancy requirement
because people stay at other area hotels or book through discounted online providers, the Convention must pay the difference which in
turn will make future Conventions more expensive.
A $350 penalty will be assessed if you are not a local convention area resident commuting to the convention from home or if you do not book or share a room in the convention.

All hotel reservations must be made through Ayelet Tours, Ltd. and will be on a first come, first served basis. A credit card will be
required on site by the hotel to pay for your room and/or to cover any incidental charges. The room reservation deadline is May 20, 2023.

After this date, reservations will be accepted on a space availability basis only. There is a $75 penalty for hotel rooms cancelled once
booked. In addition, hotel rooms cancelled within 72 hours of arrival are subject to a one-night penalty. There is a $75 early
departure fee should you check out before your scheduled departure.

Guest rooms are 400 square feet and feature either a King bed or two Queen beds. Contact Ayelet Tours for
roll-away space and availability. Complimentary guest room Internet access and self-parking for attendees.
You can note bedding (king bed, etc.) and other special hotel requests later in the booking process.
Special requests are noted but cannot be guaranteed

The Standard Guest Room rate of $260/night is based on single or double occupancy including taxes.
The rate above is per room per night and includes taxes and fees.

One night's deposit to a major credit card or paid by check to Ayelet Tours, Ltd. is required. Please note, credit card will only be charged a
one night's deposit including taxes. Upon receipt of the hotel deposit and paid registration fee, confirmation will be forwarded to you.
No confirmation letter will be sent without a credit card or payment by check for your hotel deposit. The hotel balance is due upon departure and is payable directly to the hotel.
