MPA reminder

From Allen McConnell:

MPA’s 90th annual meeting will be held April 12-14, 2018, at the Palmer House in Chicago. Interested people (faculty, graduate students, undergraduates) can register now for the conference on-line. We recently negotiated for significantly reduced room rates at the Palmer House and moved the conference earlier in the semester to avoid scheduling conflicts (e.g., graduation weekends, finals week). As a result, our discounted hotel block typically sells out well in advance of the registration deadline, and currently fewer than 20% of the discounted MPA rooms remain. Thus, I’d strongly encourage people to both register for the conference and grab a discounted Palmer House room as soon as possible (once our room block is sold, what remaining rooms are available will be considerably more expensive).
