The housing reservations page for NECC 2009 is open and in past years, I would be there on day one trying to grab a room at the cheapest hotel within walking distance of the conference venue.
Not this year.
This time around I’m staying home and NECC is coming to us, just a short (depending on which line is screwed up on any particular day) Metro ride away at the DC Convention Center.
While it’s great traveling to conferences, it’s just as well NECC is here since it’s pretty clear that, considering the budget mess we’re facing here in the overly-large school district, I won’t be getting any help with expenses.
Anyway, even if you’re not completely sure whether you’ll be visiting us next June, book your reservation before all the
cheap slightly less expensive rooms are gone.
And hopefully, lots of you will be able to join us for the big show.
