1997 Conference in Santa Fe

The ACE-DHH 23rd Annual Meeting will be held in historical Santa Fe, New Mexico on March 7, 8, 9, and 10. Santa Fe is approximately 60 minutes from the Albuquerque Airport. Airport shuttles run on the half hour and stop at the Inn at Loretto - the site of the 1997 conference. Just a reminder, you do not need a passport to visit Santa Fe, unless you are not from the United States. Santa Fe is the second oldest town in the U.S., founded in 1607 by the Spanish, 13 years before the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock.

Santa Fe is located in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, 7,000 feet above sea level, with nearby peaks as high as 12,000 feet. You can ski from Thanksgiving to Easter. Santa Fe is one of the largest art markets in the world. It has 200 restaurants, 150 art galleries, 50 Indian jewelry shops, 8 major museums, and numerous performing arts events. And at the Inn at Loretto, you are within walking distance of the historic Plaza.

Fifty rooms at the Inn at Loretto - site of the Miracle Staircase - have been reserved for members at a cost of $105 per night for single or double occupancy. Reservations may be communicated directly through the Inn s toll free number (8--/727-5531). Ask for the ACE-DHH conference rate. If you care to arrive early or stay late, please advise the reservations personnel when you phone. The Inn at Loretto will honor your conference rate several days prior or after the conference if you make prior arrangements. Be sure to make reservations by February 6, 1997 to be assured the conference rate. Every room has its own balcony overlooking the Santa Fe Park, the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, or the Plaza.
