Housing pirates

When we secure sleeping rooms at hotels for our conferences (commonly referred to as room blocks), we research the properties to make sure 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 are 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 how housing pirates work and what to do if you encounter this situation.

Assistance with housing

Housing for the TASA | TASB Convention is handled exclusively by Convention Housing Management (CHM). Please call 800.340.1905 or e-mail tasa_tasb@chmrooms.com for assistance.​

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