Housing forms for Annual Meeting hotel reservations in San Francisco will be mailed in September to give attendees the best opportunity to reserve a room. The Academy has rooms in 80 hotels near the convention center, Union Square, and Fisherman's Wharf. The Annual Meeting Preliminary Program and registration forms will be sent in mid-October. The Academy housing bureau, International Travel Service (ITS), will accept reservations by phone, fax, or mail. Please have your Academy identification number and credit card handy when you call ITS. Your Academy ID number, which is on the housing form address label, will be required this year to insure the computerized on-site housing locator will be as complete as possible. The deposit will remain $150 per room. Discounted airfares also are available for the meeting. Discounts of 5-10 percent off the lowest and unrestricted fares are offered through your own travel agent, the airlines or ITS.
