NOTE: Be wary of travel scams. If anyone claiming to be associated with a travel agency and/or “convention housing” contacts you with an offer for booking a hotel room for this event, do NOT provide your contact or payment information. This is a scam. NARUC does not contract with such firms. In some cases, these companies falsely claim to be the official housing bureau or room representative for NARUC. We have NOT contracted with any company to serve as our representative. If the headquarters hotel sells out – overflow hotels will be noted on our website.
