The Marriott Rivercenter, host hotel for the 2018 NEAFCS Annual Session, has notified us that we have sold out our group block on the following two nights only - Saturday, September 22 and Friday, September 28.  If you try and make a reservation that includes either or both of these nights, it will tell you that rooms are not available; however THEY DO have rooms available on these nights, it will just be at a higher rate. The other rooms nights are still available at our group rate. You may be required to make two reservations if that is the case.  If you have this issue, please notify the National Office and we will see if we can offer assistance.
