RA 2017: Housing and Travel

RA 2017

HOUSING RESERVATIONS

1. RESERVATIONS

Housing requests should be submitted online. The online site can be found at http://www.nysut.org/eReg/RA2017. Once a hotel becomes sold out, it will no longer be available on the website.

2. CUTOFF DATE

Housing applications will be accepted until the hotel block becomes exhausted but no later than Feb. 21, 2017. It is expected that the block will fill before that date.

3. FORM SUBMISSION

Complete one application per room regardless of how many guests are in the room. The same application covers housing for the L&RCPC and the NYSUT RA.

You may request a faxed or emailed copy of the housing form by calling 518-213-6000 or 800-342-9810, ext. 6699. The completed form should be mailed to NYSUT RA, 800 Troy-Schenectady Road, Latham, NY 12110 or it may be faxed to 518-213-6422. A valid personal email address and credit card with expiration date are required. Remember to provide your personal email address and not that of your workplace. Note, credit card expiration date must be later than 4/2017.

4. CANCELLATIONS AND CHANGES

Please make changes directly with NYSUT until THE CUTOFF DATE — Feb. 21, 2017. Your acknowledgement email will include details on how to make those changes.

5. NO TAX EXEMPTIONS

Since NYSUT locals are not eligible for sales tax exemption, the hotel(s) will not accept tax exemption certificates.
