NRHA's discounted rate is $199 per night plus tax, currently 15.5%. Book your reservation online or call (800) 320-5744 and reference National Rural Health Association. Deadline is Monday March 23 or when rooms sell out. NRHA conferences always sell out early, so don't delay booking your room.
Some of NRHA’s members have been contacted by a company claiming to represent NRHA in booking hotel reservations for this conference. This is unfortunately a widespread problem in the meeting industry. NRHA does not use a third party booking service, and hotel reservations can be booked directly.
Register today for 8'x10' booths at $2,500 which includes two full conference registration badges.
