THE 2017 GATHERING
The Gathering has now been finalized. Here are the details.
The Sheraton Gunter Hotel is the host hotel. A block of rooms has been reserved and you should book your accommodations yourself directly on line. By accessing this link you will automatically be redirected to our own web page at the Sheraton where you can book your dates with the ACGS special rate already included. You will receive the negotiated rate of $139/night without having to enter any unique codes. On completion of your booking, close the booking page and you will go back to the ACGS website where you can now complete your registration as outlined below.
Note: The special pricing for the ACGS Gathering is only valid through September 7th. It is up to the discretion of the hotel to offer additional rooms at the special rate if anyone tries to book rooms after this date.

How to Register
Registration and payment should be completed through our website. We have tried to make this a simple and painless task. If you click on Registration below, you will be taken to a separate page to register. There is a single registration fee of $125 per person which includes attendance in EVERY event offered. There is a separate registration fee of $80 for those who can ONLY attend the Banquet on Saturday evening. The only information required is the number of registrants for the banquet and their names. It would not be complete without donations of wine. So if you choose you may also order some wine.
You are also being given the opportunity to specify who would like to sit with at the
Banquet, if you choose to add anyone.
You do not need to be a member to attend the Gathering. We hope that after attending you will join the Society.
Note: If for some reason you need to cancel your registration after having registered, you will receive a full refund if the cancellation is received prior to August 28th. After August 28th there will be no refunds.
