2017 DB Summit in Austin, TX in March
Posted by , 3 Mo. Ago
2017 DB Summit March 5 - March 6, 2017, Austin, TX
We will be holding the 2017 DB Summit on March 5th and 6th at the Texas School for the Blind. This is immediately following the Texas Symposium on Deafblindness which will be held on March 2-4. This was done to make it as easy as possible for project staff to attend both if you so choose. Preliminary information on the Texas Symposium can be found on the schools workshops and conferences page: http://www.tsbvi.edu/tsbvi-sponsored-workshops-and-conferences
The Texas Symposium is not at the school but at a hotel approximately 15 miles north of the school.
Our meeting, DB Summit, will be held at the school itself and we have reserved a block of rooms at a hotel close to the school:
Courtyard by Marriott “Austin – University Area”
5660 N. IH-35, Austin, TX 87851
The rooms are under the group name: DB Summit. The rate will be $128 + 15.82% tax per night for the nights of March 4,5,6.
We will be meeting March 5th, 8:30 – 5, and March 6th, 8:30 – 3
You will need to arrive on the 4th and should be able to leave on the 6th. However, if you cannot get a flight out that evening there are rooms reserved for the night of the 6th as well.
While this hotel is the closest to the school it is still a few miles from the school. We are exploring transportation options to make it as easy as possible for people to get back and forth.
Please reach out to Sam Morgan if you have any questions or concerns. We will be gathering a planning committee soon and will, as in past years, have activities leading up to Summit so please state tuned.
