Meeting Room Accommodations

SLATE will make every effort to schedule popular topics in rooms large enough to accommodate anticipated attendance. Since many topics are extremely popular, it is wise to arrive early or select alternative sessions as you plan your convention schedule. AWSA/WASDA and the Kalahari Resort are REQUIRED to follow local fire regulations and may ask participants in rooms filled to capacity to choose another session.

Medical Emergency

In the event of a medical emergency call Security at extension 4HELP from any of the house phones. Be prepared to give details as to the nature of the emergency and the exact location. If an ambulance is needed, you should request Security to notify one.


Please also be aware that staff will be taking pictures and video of the Convention. These photos may be used in future promotional materials.

Name Badge

Be sure to wear your name badge during the entire Convention. You may be asked to show your name badge when entering sessions or events.
