The second annual Southeastern EcoReps Conference will bring together student EcoReps and staff advisors from colleges and universities across the southeastern region. Whether you are planning to start an EcoReps program at your university or are looking for new ideas for an already successful program we will have a session for you. We can’t wait to see you on February 22, 2013!

 

What does it cost?

There is NO conference registration fee and we will cover 5 meals while you are at the conference. You will need to pay for your transportation and lodging costs. Registration closes on February 8, 2013.

 

Where should we stay?

We have blocked hotel rooms at the Courtyard Marriot at USC. The rooms are $99 per night and you can park for free at the hotel. This hotel is a 5-10 minute walk from the conference location. Our hope is that you can have 4 students share each room to keep the cost as low as possible. If you are not able to completely fill a room and you would like us to help match your students with students from another school, please let us know at ecorepsusc@gmail.com.

Use this link to book your hotel room and the dates and special conference rate should be entered automatically: Courtyard Columbia Downtown at USC >> 

If you prefer to call make sure to mention that you are with the EcoReps Conference so you receive the discounted rate and free parking. The hotel number is: 803-799-7800
