LODGING DETAILS

NCEDA’s block at the Holiday Inn is full! Email Liz (liz@nceda.org) to get your name on the wait list at the Holiday Inn (but be sure to make a reservation at our overflow block as well to cover your bases). She will work with the Holiday Inn to get NCEDA members into cancelled rooms between now and June.

We have an overflow block just down the street from Holiday Inn at Shell Island Resort. Our group rate at Shell Island is $239 per night. Call their reservation line at 910.256.8696 and request the NCEDA block. The deadline to guarantee this discounted rate is May 12.

Overnight parking at Holiday Inn will be $3 per night for hotel guests (charged to your room). Conference attendees not staying at the Holiday Inn may park there at no charge during the day – however, they can’t guarantee availability. If the hotel lot is full, there is street parking, and a lot next door to Holiday Inn – parking in either of these locations will be $2.50 per hour or $17 for the full day.

Sponsorship opportunities are available for each NCEDA conference and event.
