ARARA 2019 Conference


The ARARA 2019 Conference will be held at Flagstaff, Arizona at the Northern Arizona University (NAU) June 14 - 17, 2019. The local committee will consist of Kelley Hays-Gilpin, Bob Mark, and Evelyn Billo. We thank them and appreciate their willingness to help on short notice. Evelyn Billo and Donna Gillette will co-chair the overall conference.



The NAU Campus from their promotional material.

This year is going to be a bit different from most previous conferences since the conference facilities are not within a hotel. However, there are wonderful accommodation and food opportunities next door to the conference facility. The Board believes that these are going to be the best accommodations for the majority of our membership. The rooms are also a requirement for our use of the NAU conference facilities. As a result, we will contract for 120 members to stay on campus. If there is additional interest we can contract more rooms.

Below is information about these accommodations below from NAU material. Do not contact NAU to make reservations! We will do that through our own conference registration process.
