2017 JAC Housing Information

To obtain a room within one of the Joint Annual Conference Housing Blocks, you must have a paid conference registration and a housing deposit, per room requested.

  1. Housing Form: You will be given the following options:
    • Check (3) guarantee if individual will not arrive before 6 p.m. Note - if arrival is guaranteed and individual does not claim the room, there is a liability for the room cost for the arrival date.
    • Check (3) room type desired (request only). Single (1 bed); Double (2 beds). Room assignment will be made onsite upon check-in, based on availability.
    • Check (3) whether individual is to pay his/her own account upon departure from the hotel or their account may be billed to the superintendent at the official address for payment.
    • If requesting rooms at more than one hotel, please complete a separate form for each hotel requested.
  2. Housing Deposit: All housing requests must be accompanied by a $200 deposit, per room requested. IASB has a limited block of rooms for conference attendees, therefore, one paid registration equals one housing request. To obtain a guestroom within one of the JAC Housing Blocks, you must have a paid conference registration. Housing is assigned on a first-received basis of appropriate deposit(s) per guestroom requested. Payment will be accepted as listed on the housing form. All housing deposits are non-refundable and will not be processed until payment is received.
  3. Hotel Placement: Please list only hotel(s) you will accept in descending preference order. Housing is assigned daily on a first-received basis. If one of the listed hotels is available the day your housing is processed, the first available choice will be emailed to the primary contact email.

    If none of the listed hotels are available the day your housing is processed, an alternate hotel placement will be chosen and emailed to the primary contact. The primary contact must respond by the deadline listed in the email to reject the alternate hotel placement by emailing Shantel Rotherham at srotherham@iasb.com.

    If no rejection email is received by the deadline date, the housing/non-refundable deposit(s) will be assigned to the alternate hotel.

    If the alternate hotel assignment is rejected, IASB will refund the housing deposit(s) immediately and the attendee(s) must secure their own housing.

  4. Hotel Confirmations: IASB usually receives hotel confirmations by mid-September. To access your hotel confirmation number, go to IASB 1) My Account, 2) District/Organization Transactions, 3) Completed Group Registrations to find your hotel confirmation(s).

    After this date, if you do not have your hotel confirmation(s), contact the assigned hotel directly. After receiving a hotel confirmation, all further housing communications are to be directed to the hotel in-house reservations manager of the confirming hotel.

  5. When entering housing requests, please consider: Some individuals participating in Pre-Conference Workshops or Seminars, Administrative Professionals’ Program, and the Illinois Council of School Attorneys may require a Thursday arrival.
  6. Length-of-Stay Restrictions: Most hotels charge an early-departure fee for onsite departure changes.
