From NC APCO President Jeryl Anderson

July 27, 2017 - Thank you for your interest in attending our annual NC APCO NENA state conference this year being hosted at a new venue at the Cherokee Convention Center, September 10 - 13, 2017!

Effective immediately I have been able to add more rooms at the conference rate of $109.00 for Sunday through Wednesday nights.  Please call now to make your reservations at (828) 497-7777.

Unfortunately there are NO rooms available on Saturday, September 9th at the conference rate of $129.00.  Room are now costing upwards of $399 for Saturday, their busiest night and we could not secure any more rooms on this particular night, so we will remain sold out for the conference rate.

If you booked your rooms and they did not give you the $129.00 rate for Saturday or the $109.00 rate for Sunday to Wednesday night, call them back and I have been assured you should get that rate.  It is our negotiated conference rate.

I have been in contact with the sales manager at the Fairfield Inn and Suites, that is directly across (within walking distance), literally across the sidewalk from Cherokee.  They have plenty of rooms available on Saturday evening, September 9th for $199 + tax for a double room and $209 + tax for a King room.  They are unable to give state rates on Saturday night.  

NOTE:  If you book a room at this rate, sometimes the rates change and at check in you should ask for "the going rate", if it is cheaper than what you booked at, then ask for that lower rate and they will give it to you.

However, on Sunday, September 10th to Wednesday, September 13th evening, they can offer a state rate of $91.00 + tax for either double or king rooms.  If you decide to stay at this location or put staff there, you must ask for the state rate upon booking.

You can contact the Fairfield Inn at (828) 497-0400.

It is my hope that you will be able to secure lodging at the Fairfield Inn for Saturday night and then secure your room on site at Harrah's for the remainder of the conference.  We understand that it is more fun and easier to be on site where all of the events and training is occurring.  

Overflow hotels are listed below.

Thank you for your patience in this matter and we look forward to seeing you and your staff in September!
