*For 2016, if you are sharing a hotel room with colleagues you will need to designate one person listing each of the roommates and then share confirmation with roommates. 
Cancellation of hotel room reservations will result in one nights room charge to credit card, therefore it is important that not everyone sharing a room make separate reservations.
Any one securing room reservations for the 2016 NAE4-HA Conference will be charged a minimum of one night’s lodging fee on the confirmed credit card at time of reservation.  
If reservation is canceled, deposit is not returned.  To avoid being assessed the cancellation fee, identify and secure your
roommates prior to making reservations and registering for the 2016 Conference.  Designate one person to make reservations and share the confirmation with others in their lodging room.

and your health.  But there’s good news -- burnout can be healed
Audience members will learn the definition of Burnout and the
symptoms thereof.  But more importantly, attendees will be laughing,
and at the same time learning
how to apply Mark’s F.I.N.G.E.R.
philosophy to help themselves or their co-workers avoid and/or
recover from Burnout.
