NOTE:
The Convention periodically updates this online catalog. Due to the catalog being stored online as a Dropbox file, when an update occurs, the Dropbox file extension automatically changes which renders any links to the previous file name unuseable. Should you encounter one of these changes before we have updated the red "Click Here" link, please use the "ARBA Convention Website" link above to access the latest catalog update directly from there.

ANDRC
Hotel

The most recent ANDRC Board discussion regarding
ANDRC host hotels resulted in the intent
to no longer put the ANDRC at monetary risk 
for filling a Convention room block.

There will NOT be an ANDRC room block
and/or host hotel for the 2018 Convention.
Please make your room reservations accordingly.
