Conference “all-inclusive” packages are exclusively handled by the Association of Christian Birth Professionals.  All registration and room bookings will be done on line at www.acbpinc.com.

We urge families to register early as the number of rooms for families are limited.  There are no adjourning rooms in this hotel.  There is no additional charge for cribs.  There is no additional charge for up to 2 children (ages 0-17) in a room with their parents.  Breakfast is included for these children but other meals are at the expense of the family.

Rooms are filled as double occupancy.  If you have a special request of a roommate, you must indicate the person on your registration form.   As we cannot guarantee every request, we will make every effort to fulfill your choice.
