An important update on housing: as a response to our earlier mailing, we tallied the number of requests for each type of housing, in the interest of letting Marist know how many rooms to save for the conference. Due to a staffing change at Marist, we must ask folks to stay tuned for updates on our website and Facebook page. The good news is that none of the Marist rooms have yet to be claimed. Feel free to check back with us after the new year; we imagine the Marist post will soon be filled and there will thus be someone to help us with reserving Marist rooms. In the meantime, please feel free to consult the Marist-LdM website for hotel information: http://www.marist.edu/admission/florence/hotels.html. All good wishes and thank you for your patience. It’s going to be a wonderful conference!
