*Headquarters Hotel: Our headquarters hotel will be the Hilton Austin. Because there are Executive Committee meetings and Board meetings taking place at the Hilton in conjunction with the TASA/TASB Convention, the guest rooms at the headquarter hotel are reserved for TASA and TASB association leadership. This does not mean association staff; these guest rooms are occupied by TASA's Executive Committee and their local boards and TASB's Board of Directors and their local boards. 

For questions about this process or help with problems encountered with the hotels,  call 800.340.1905 or e-mail tasa_tasb@chmrooms.com.

Housing pirates

When we secure sleeping rooms at hotels for our conferences (commonly referred to as room blocks), we research the properties to make certain that our attendees will be adequately accommodated. The room block is established to ensure that rooms meet our standards and are offered at a discounted price.

We have been informed that registrants are often contacted by fax, e-mail or most often by phone with offers for cut rate housing. The intent is to convince you that the offer is made on our behalf, or that the soliciting company is associated with TASA/TASB. This is not true. The exclusive service provider for TASA/TASB Convention housing is Convention Housing Management (CHM). Find out more about housing pirates work and what to do if you encounter this situation.

Assistance with housing

For all housing questions and reservations, contact Convention Housing Management (CHM) at 800.340.1905 or tasa_tasb@chmrooms.com.

If you have questions that CHM cannot answer, e-mail Mandy Begley at mandy.begley@tasb.org or call 800.580.8272, extension 6104.
