The Altoona Grand Hotel is offering conference attendees a rate of $80 plus tax per room per night for single or double occupancy with a complimentary breakfast. The lodging deadline is September 22, 2023.
Please contact the Altoona Grand Hotel directly for rooms by calling (814) 946-1631. Be sure to state that you are with the “AMR Conference” to get the rate stated above. They also have a website and can be found on several travel websites, but we have negotiated a better rate with the hotel directly.
Scholarships: Scholarships will be considered this year for overnight lodging at the Altoona Grand Hotel on October 23rd, 24th, and 25th at the above-stated rates on a first-come, first-serve basis and may be offered in whole or part to members of non-profit community/watershed organizations and conservation districts in Pennsylvania or adjoining states. For in-person attendance only. Preference will be given to those who can room together to save on lodging costs. Mileage and other travel costs are not being considered this year. The PA AMR Conference Committee reserves the right to award scholarships on demonstrated need, distance, and availability of funding. The scholarship request deadline is September 18, 2023. Scholarship awardees will be notified following this deadline. Please contact Robert Hughes at firstname.lastname@example.org or (570) 371-3523 for more information.
Scholarship awardees will be responsible for making their own reservation by the lodging deadline (stated above) and registering for the conference. Upon leaving the conference, the base room rate should be charged to the “PA AMR Conference Master account” (If it is not, the AMR Conference Committee will reimburse you via check after the Conference with proof of purchase for the base room rate). The PA AMR Conference Planning Committee will be providing a list of scholarship awardees to the hotel. You may be required to place your credit card on your room with the hotel for extras and incidentals, which are not the responsibility of the PA AMR Conference Committee, as the scholarship is only for the room. Cancellation of the room less than 24 hours prior to stay or “no shows” will also not be the responsibility of the PA AMR Conference Committee and will be billed to the contact information provided on the scholarship application form.
