    Hotel Reservations

    AACP has blocked guest rooms at the Hyatt Regency Chicago to ensure attendees will have exceptional accommodations for the AACP 2019 Admissions Workshop and Annual Meeting. 

    Staying at the AACP hotel block will allow AACP to keep your registration fees at the current rates. If AACP does not achieve a minimum number of overnight accommodations, the price of services will increase registration fees for future programs. Without your support, AACP faces significant financial penalties for unused sleeping rooms.
