I have just this afternoon received notice from Monmouth University that Friday through Sunday is now its Family Weekend. This change was made due to Monmouth’s home football schedule. Saturday is a particularly busy day on campus with a home football game and family programming around campus. The 2016 NMS Conference runs from Thursday through Saturday.
We can’t anticipate how this change in Monmouth’s schedule will impact the booking of room in area hotels. The Society has arranged for 40 rooms to be blocked for conference attendees. We can only add an additional block of rooms after 90% of the original block has been booked. As of this writing, another 43 room nights need to be booked before we can add any more rooms to our current block.
If you intend to attend the conference, please book your room now.
The conference hotel (5 minutes from the university) is the Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites, 294 Highway 36 East, West Long Branch, NJ 07764.
You may reserve a Standard Room by calling (732) 542-1234. Use the group booking code NMS when you reserve your room. The cost per night is $79 plus applicable taxes. A free Express Start Breakfast Bar is included. Reservation Cut-Off date is August 28, 2016. NMS Block Rooms remaining after this date will be released for general use.
