On-site check-in and packet pick up will open at 3 p.m. on Thursday, January 12, in the lobby of the Cavalry Court Inn (the conference hotel). The brand new hotel is adjacent to the main campus at Texas A&M. If your group arrives early and would like to take a tour of the A&M Campus, please contact the A&M Visitor’s Center (in the directory attached to this letter). A mixer is planned for Thursday evening.
Registration/packet pick up at the hotel will be open until 8 p.m. and then open again in the hotel Friday morning at 7 a.m.
The primary headquarters for the event will be the Agriculture and Life Sciences Building and neighboring AgriLife Center. The Friday group tours will depart from the hotel and will return to the hotel in the late afternoon. The tours are planned so all participants will get to visit the three tour stops. Lunch will be provided on the tour. Dinner Friday evening will be part of the event, and the final arrangements for the location are pending.
Saturday’s professional development concurrent sessions will be at the AgriLife Center. Students should dress business professional or in business casual as professional headshots will be among the options on the program. The Saturday sessions will end with lunch and a brief National ACT Business meeting, which will include an opportunity for chapters to pitch their proposals for the 2019 PDC meeting. We plan to adjourn by 2 p.m. Saturday.
Dinner Thursday evening is on your own. We have included a list of our favorite eating places. The hotel can give you directions, and some are in walking distance from the hotel.
