The 2011 Annual Conference Program Committee is finishing up the final details for this year’s conference, scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday, June 14-15, 2011, on Beaver Island, Michigan. Yes, there was a date change due to the popularity of the island as a wedding destination and because it is such a cool place to visit. Those factors contributed to the lack of room accommodations for our members. So, we moved it up a few weeks and blocked out rooms for you at three large hotel/lodges. The three hotel/lodges that are holding rooms for MAA members until April 13, 2011, for the nights of June 12-15, 2011, are listed below. You must tell them that you are an MAA conference attendee to reserve a room.
Emerald Isle Hotel
Beaver Island Lodge
These are only three of many hotel/lodge/motel and private home rental options. Visit the Beaver Island Chamber of Commerce accommodations website for more options at:
I also encourage you to make reservations for your travel to the island, either by ferry or air. Visit the Beaver Island Chamber of Commerce transportation site to make reservations and other planning at:
The MAA board looks forward to welcoming you to our first island conference and offering you a variety of rofessional sessions and personal adventure on this unique Michigan resource.
