We’re almost there…

..and it’s almost here!
Of course, I’m talking about the 2009 IACUC Conference, which is set to kick off in just four days at the Town and Country Resort & Convention Center in San Diego, CA. Some PRIM&R staff members head to San Diego today to finalize the last of the details before the conference kicks off with our pre-conference programs on March 28.
For those of you heading to the conference, we wanted to take a moment to answer a few outstanding questions you might have:

  1. Where and when is registration check-in?
    Registration check-in will take place in the Atlas Foyer at the following times:

    Friday, 4:00–6:00 PM
    Saturday, 7:00 AM–6:00 PM
    Sunday, 7:00 AM–6:00 PM
    Monday, 7:00 AM–6:00 PM
    Tuesday, 7:00 AM–2:00 PM

  2. What should I pack?
    As an attendee, we encourage you to wear comfortable, casual clothing throughout the meeting. We’re expecting (for now!) sunny weather, with temperatures in the 60s.
  3. How do I get from the airport to the Town and Country?
    Conference attendees can take ground transportation to and from San Diego International Airport and the Town and Country, for $10.00 each way by using Express Shuttle. Learn more about how to make a reservation and download a coupon here.
  4. What should I do in my downtime?
    If you find yourself with a few free minutes on Monday or Tuesday, be sure to take the time to visit our Poster Presentations (located in the Atlas Foyer), as well as our exhibitors (located in the Golden Ballroom Foyer). Or stop by the PRIM&R booth in the Atlas Foyer to learn more about PRIM&R, CPIA, or to enter to win a PRIM&R membership!
  5. Where can I find the PRIM&R staff if I need them?
    Some of our staff will be relocating to the Town and Country, but others will remain at the office. We are all available to answer questions that you may have. If you need to reach our on-site office, please call 619.291.7131 and ask to be connected to the PRIM&R office. If, for any reason, the hotel doesn’t answer, you can still call our Boston office at 617.423.4112, from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM ET and someone will happily assist you.

See (some of) you in San Diego!
