Hotel Accomodations

The NCPMA has reserved a block of guest rooms at the Sheraton Imperial Hotel and Convention Center (pictured above) in Research Triangle Park, NC. Guest room reservations are the individual responsibility of conference attendees. To make your reservations, call the hotel directly at (919) 941-5050 and be sure to identify yourself as an NCPMA conference attendee to receive the group rate of $98.00 per night (plus 13% in sales and occupancy taxes) for single or double occupancy accomodations.

The group rate will be offered until September 10, 2003. After that date, accomodations will be subject to room and rate availability. It is strongly suggested that you make your room reservations early, as October is the busiest month of the year at this property.

The Sheraton Imperial is located at Exit 282 (Page Road) off of I-40 in RTP.

What should I wear?!?!

Appropriate dress for the NCPMA Conference Meetings is business casual. Suggestions include: khaki slacks, button-up or golf-style shirts, blazers or sweaters and comfortable shoes. Remember that the hotel auditorium and conference rooms can become cool and personal comfort zones vary. To ensure your comfort, it is recommended that you bring a sweater or jacket to conference sessions.

The Annual Banquet (held Thursday evening at 7pm) is a formal business dress event.

President's Reception

Wednesday night

For the Presidnet's reception this year our theme is "Hawaiian", so remember to bring your "loudest" Hawaiian shirt, and grass skirts! Aloha!!

Again this year at the President's Reception we will have a poster session along with good music and lots of fun. The poster session will give conference attendees an opportunity to display their maps and to view what others around the state are creating. Bring a sample of your work and show it off! If you are interested in participating, contact the Fall Conference Committee Chair as listed above. Two awards will be given: one for "best contents" and one for "best visual".

Any types of maps are fine, the only restriction is that they be no larger than 36"x36". (If you have a special product that is larger than this, talk to the committee chairs and they may be able to work something out for you.)

Fall Conference Presentations

While talking about participation, we would love to see more presentations from our members at Fall Conference. What's going on where you are? Have you undergone a conversion, switched from hand to automated mapping, implemented a public access or internet site, or used GPS for mapping purposes? Any of these and many other topics would make a presentation that would be interesting, and who knows, maybe helpful to our members. If you are interested in doing a presentation, contact the conference chair as listed above. The sooner you do so the better so that our committee members can work to provide you an informative, interesting conference.
