We have added more rooms.  If you would like your chance to be entered in the drawing for free housing, rebook your room within the housing block to be entered.

*When you "book within the block," you help ASAS and CSAS to keep meeting costs as low as possible, and enable us to provide some of the important features meeting attendees have come to enjoy. Staying at our contracted hotel(s) is important to the organization, to the destination where we are holding this meeting, and ultimately to you as an ASAS or CSAS member. When you book a hotel outside of the block, and a contracted room goes unsold, we must pay penalty fees to the hotel. In addition, the inability to prove the actual number of hotel rooms occupied weakens our negotiating power in the future. Convention and visitors bureaus are funded based upon their ability to fulfill the room night goals which have been contracted; a reduction in funding means fewer goods and services which make our meeting a success. Please support the American Society of Animal Science and the Canadian Society of Animal Science by reserving your sleeping room at one of our official hotels.
