SFS has contracted with three hotels for group room blocks during the SFS Annual Meeting, in connection with an agreement with the Raleigh Convention and Visitor's Bureau. The city of Raleigh has granted generous subsidies for meeting space to SFS as incentives to bring us to their city, and we encourage SFS Annual Meeting attendees to help us honor those commitments and support the society by booking your hotel room within the contracted blocks at these three hotels:

Please support the organization and help us keep your conference fees low by booking your hotel room at one of our contracted hotels listed below:
