The DC Chapter is delighted to assist in hosting this historic conference.
Be sure to stop by the DC Information Booth located near the SLA Registration area in the Washington Convention Center. We have the "Official Visitors Guide" which is packed with information you want and need. Major areas cover Museums, Theatres, Restaurants, Shopping, Hotels, Special Events and Maps. There will be a special Restaurant Concierge located near our booth to assist in making reservations.
In the Guide you will find Special emphasis on the Lincoln Centennial, the Green Scene of parks and gardens, and Summer Spotlight which features Festivals, Concerts and Other Celebrations. Other items we'll provide include METRO Pocket Maps, other maps of DC, Special brochures of the National Mall as well as the SLA 2009 Conference Pin. Special Drawings held each day, so be sure to deposit your business card for great prizes. Drawings daily Sat-Tues at 4:45 p.m.; Wednesday 11:45 a.m. We promise the prizes will be easily portable!
Use this hospitality wiki developed by many DC/SLA Chapter members to learn specific things about the DC Neighborhoods, interesting things to do with kids - Toddlers to Teens using the "Our Kids" web site (many coupons for savings listed there!). Our Volunteers have been working on this page for more than a year....it is a real gold mine!
The DC Chapter Volunteers will be available to answer questions, make suggestions and generally welcome you to DC. DC Information Booth: Saturday - Tuesday staffed from 7:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.; Wednesday 7:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Looking forward to seeing you in DC!! Greta D. Ober, 2009 DC Chapter President
