Step 2:

Hotel Reservations - Required Forms

Use the forms, provided as a download below, to make reservations at one of the hotels honoring a Virginia FCCLA housing block. It is important for attendees to use one of these designated hotels in order to maintain adequate rooms and rates for future years.
Fax or mail the Hotel Reservation Form directly to the selected hotel by February 15, to assure listed rates. Make reservations earlier if you have a strong preference for a specific hotel since many fill up quickly. This form is sent to the selected hotel, not to VA FCCLA.
