Conference Assistant REIMBURSEMENT
a) There is an allowance for reimbursement of THREE NIGHTS LODGING AT THE HYATT REGENCY OR, if directed, ROCHESTER RIVERSIDE HOTEL at one-half the Conference Room Rate. Therefore, for a single occupancy room where the CA does not share the room, the CA would be responsible for one-half the rate and reimbursed for the other half. Do not delay the room registration process as the Hotels have Conference Rate deadlines and limited rooms available at this rate.
Once you are approved as a CA, it is requested that you register at the Hyatt Hotel. When you do, please indicate that you are a Conference Assistant for STANYS.
Note: To have your hotel bill credited you must STAY AT ONE OF THE HOTELS and BE PREPARED TO ASSIST THE ENTIRE CONFERENCE.
For Conference Assistants that are "commuters" and will not need reimbursement for lodging, the FULL CONFERENCE REGISTRATION FEE for "commuters" is $0.00.
b) For Conference Assistants there is a REDUCTION IN THE COST OF FULL CONFERENCE REGISTRATION which includes three dinner meals and one breakfast or lunch. (Savings Example: If the CA is a Regular STANYS member, the CA would pay $150 for Full Conference Registration which equates to a 62.5% savings.) For Conference Assistants that are commuters there is a full reduction in the Conference Registration Fee (= $0.00).
