2024 AABD Conference: Information about accommodations and airport transfers

Good news

We are pleased to inform all members that the hotels have agreed to extend reservations for an additional week? The reserved rooms will remain available until April 22, 2024. Considering the significance of this being the 70th anniversary of Brown vs. Board of Education, there's a possibility of rate increases if the reserved block is released. Please go ahead and book your hotels now.

Additionally, for the convenience and safety of all delegates, kindly send your flight itineraries to These itineraries should include arrival and departure dates, times, and flight numbers. This will allow the conference organizers to monitor any cancellations or delays. Given that Washburn is one and a half hours away from the airport, relying on taxis for those who miss the shuttle could prove to be quite costly.
