The 2020 Children's Institute has been postponed to 2021. Booksellers are asked to cancel their hotel reservation via the confirmation email or by calling (888) 236-2427 (there may be a wait time for calls due to furloughs).
The 2020 Children's Institute will take place at the Westin La Paloma Resort and Spa, located at 3800 East Sunrise Drive in Tucson, Arizona, a AAA Four-Diamond hotel in the middle of the Sonoran Desert with views of the Santa Catalina Mountains. The resort offers five outdoor pools with cabanas, chaise lounge chairs, waterfalls, the Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, and the Mynd Spa.
The ABA hotel room block at the Westin La Paloma Resort & Spa is now filled. To be placed on a first-come, first-served waitlist for rooms as they become available, please complete this form.
Rooms are $115 plus 12.05% tax (rate good until May 29 or until the block sells out). The normal resort service charge of $29 has been waived for Children’s Institute (note that it will show as $29 on your confirmation letter as well as on the total but will be corrected on the final bill). The resort service charge includes access to complimentary Wi-Fi, the WestinWORKOUT® Fitness Studio, and shuttle service to the La Encantada shopping center.
To avoid a cancellation fee of one night’s room and tax, cancel at least three days prior to arrival.
ABA’s goal is to make meetings accessible to all regardless of an attendee’s visible or hidden disabilities. Let us know of accommodations we can provide to make your Ci8 experience more accessible; contact ABA Meetings & Planning Officer Jill Perlstein at (914) 406-7542 or firstname.lastname@example.org. All requests will be kept confidential.
