New Location - Sandia Resort & Casino
We have decided to move our location to Sandia Resort and Casino for trainings and the January through May chapter meetings. The meeting space at Sandia is truly amazing, brand new with lots of added perks.
A couple of items to note for those of you who have not ventured out to Sandia Resort before. First, underground parking is great but it requires you take an elevator and walk through the casino to get to the meetings. This will put you in a smoking allowed area before getting to the meeting space which is smoke free. If you would prefer to avoid smoking you will need to park in the open parking SE of the Casino and walk in the entrance to registration. The meeting rooms are located just around the corner from registration past the pool area. There will be plenty of staff who can help for your first visit.
