FALL 2015 ROANOKE CONFERENCE REGISTRATION
The Local Area Arrangements and Program Committees welcome you to the October 8-10, 2015 MARAC meeting in Roanoke, Virginia. Drawing inspiration from the Blue Ridge Mountains that serve as the backdrop for our meeting, the theme “Moving Mountains: Ingenuity and Innovation in Archives” attempts to capture one characteristic that the archival profession and the people of Appalachia have in common—the ability to make do with what one has and yet find ways to move forward within those constraints.

ROANOKE HOTEL REGISTRATION INFORMATION
Our meeting will be held at the Hotel Roanoke & Conference Center (a DoubleTree by Hilton). The MARAC room block at the Hotel Roanoke has filled up quickly!
We recommend that you always check with the conference hotel first to see if a room has opened up and at this time, please call them directly at (540) 985-5900. We also recommend that you call them if you need to make any changes to your reservation and they do offer free shuttle service from the airport.
If you are unable to reserve a room at the conference hotel, MARAC also has a room block at the Sheraton Roanoke Hotel for $169. The Sheraton is approximately 5 miles from the conference hotel with free shuttle service from the airport.
Please call the Sheraton at 888-625-5132 and be sure to reference the group - MARAC Overflow Block. Or reserve online at:
FALL 2015 CONFERENCE RIDESHARE/ROOMSHARE INFORMATION
Use the following spreadsheets to find fellow MARAC Roanoke attendees to share rides and hotel rooms. These spreadsheets are editable by anyone and all attendees are welcome to use them. Once you have found a ride or roommate, please come back and edit your information accordingly.
The spreadsheets are intended for informational use only. This is not a matching service; you need to use the information on the spreadsheets to find people with whom to share rides and rooms. Please use good judgment and common sense when reaching out to strangers. MARAC and MARAC officers are not responsible for the contents of these spreadsheets or for any actions that result from using these spreadsheets. The spreadsheets will be deleted on October 17, 2015, one week after the MARAC conference ends.
