June 18 Update on conference guest room accommodations: The only remaining room availability for the conference at the resort is for Thursday and Friday nights. The resort is sold out for the weekend so we were unable to add any additional rooms to our conference room block.

You can reserve your room on-line using the on-line reservation form or call 855-923-7431.

And, there are some privately owned condos on the Pinehurst property available through Airbnb that offer great prices.
