Lodging: LAST DAY TO BOOK HOTEL IS JAN. 28 (extended twice!) We have a block of rooms at the Courtyard by Marriott in the Lake Nona section of Orlando:  A king + sofa bed suite is $155/night and recommended for 2 people and a double queen room is $155/night and holds up to 4 people. Each guest will have free wifi, free parking, and complimentary breakfast at the hotel.  All rooms booked through NAAAP (this Silkstart event site) will be tax exempt but marked up with the merchant (credit card processing fee); hence, the total room cost is $162. We ask that you email your roommate plans to , e.g. "Vicky C (Miami) booked a room and roommate will be Jennifer T."  When you check out, Silkstart asks for the name of Attendees #2, #3, etc. for each room night.  Enter the name that should be on the hotel room reservation; in other words, Attendees #2, #3, etc. is still YOU, Attendee #1.


Note:  Registration is open to people who hold NAAAP active memberships only.  Your account is based on the email you used to register with your chapter.  National Admin may need to use their chapter credentials that pre-date having a national email. If your chapter has not updated your membership status to be active/live, please email: with your name, ticket type (Rookie, Early Bird Member, Regular Member) and chapter. Together we can address the problem.
