RWA Conference News Alert has Relocated.

RWA Announces New Conference Location

We at RWA are deeply saddened by the events in Nashville and the mid-Tennessee region, and we wish a speedy recovery to friends and businesses in the area. It is our hope that RWA will have an opportunity to return to the Gaylord Opryland for a future conference. RWA has made arrangements to contribute a portion of our charitable donations from the 2010 Literacy Autographing event to Nashville Adult Literacy Council. 

The Board of Directors is pleased to announce that the 30th Annual RWA Conference will be held at The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Orlando, Florida, July 28–31. 

The RWA Conference registration rate remains $425 for members/$500 for nonmembers through July 1. After July 1, the registration rate goes up to $475 for members/$550 for nonmembers. 

Hotel rooms for RWA Conference attendees are available at the fantastic rate of $149 per night, single or double if booked by July 10, 2010. If more than two guests share a room, the cost will increase by $25 per person per night. Children under 18 may stay for free in their parents’ room using existing bedding. Room tax is 12.5 percent. Included in the room rate is a hotel service package that includes the following:

  • In-room high-speed Internet access
  • Two bottles of water daily
  • Up to 60 minutes of free local telephone calls, toll-free and credit card access calls (10 cents per minute after 60 minutes)
  • 20 minutes of domestic long distance calls per day
  • Unlimited access to the hotel’s health clubs

For the convenience of our registrants, individuals who had previously registered to attend the conference in Nashville do not need to contact RWA to re-register for the conference in Orlando. Individuals who are unable to come to Orlando will be given a full refund. Details are included in the Conference FAQ .

Please do not call the hotel to book a reservation.  The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort will set up an online link for reservations. As soon as the link has been established, RWA will send hotel reservation instructions to all registrants. As before, the e-mail will include a link to reserve your hotel room(s) at the group rate.

RWA regrets the need to move our conference to a new location, and we appreciate your patience and understanding while we work to make the 30th Annual Conference a memorable event.  As more information becomes available, it will be posted on the RWA website.
