I have done the best that I could to fulfill all the requests for room reservations at the Caribe Hilton for the NYSPEC Annual Convention, December 2 thru the 7th at the group rate of 199.00. I cannot extract anymore rooms from the Caribe. At this point in time if you are still looking for a room, I suggest you try other hotels or keep trying the Caribe.
I am asking everyone who may have booked more rooms than needed or if for whatever reason you now want to cancel, you should cancel thru me but only if you are cancelling with more than 30 days before our convention dates. This way I can re distribute your room to someone who may still be waiting. If you are cancelling with less than 30 days, you will have to cancel thru the hotel and you will be charged the one-night deposit.
The problems we are encountering this year will have to be addressed. I will be setting up a meeting with my convention committee to discuss various possibilities moving forward.
As of Friday September 9, thru the 21st I will have limited access to my emails and phone. I am taking some time to travel with my family. When I return it will be full speed ahead planning the agenda and the events for another successful conference.
