As of September 13, 2021, the hotel notes that COVID precautions are in place, including mandates masking for all guests and staff in public areas, except when eating and drinking. Also, temperature checks are required upon entering the facility. The Board is watching local announcements regarding mandated precautions and travel restrictions and is prepared to adjust meeting details as necessary. Currently, under emergency order, either proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test is required for entry into Oahu restaurants. While this order is scheduled to end prior to the WRIA conference, members may wish to ensure their vaccination or testing status prior to travel to Hawaii.

More details regarding rooms are available on the hotel’s website.   The group room rate of $209/night plus taxes and $10 per day resort fee is available for three days before and after the conference (subject to availability). If you wish to reserve nights prior to or after the conference, call 1-800-445-8667 and ask for “Sales”. Provide group code WRIA22 to obtain the group rate.

The negotiated room rate includes the following:

  • Wireless In-Room Internet
  • Beach/ocean gear
  • Unlimited DVD/Blu-Ray movies

If for some reason you happen to book your reservation online elsewhere, or by phone without mentioning WRIA, please email Jim Hilliard (james.hilliard@temple.edu) so that we can assure your booking will be counted towards our negotiated room block.

Papers and Presentation Information

If you decide that you will not be attending the meeting, please advise us as soon as possible so we can amend the program accordingly.  Any accepted paper participants who have not registered by December 1 are assumed to be “no-shows,” and will be removed from the program.

Please consult the meeting program for the time and day of your presentation. Most presenters will have a maximum of 20 minutes to present their paper, so please ensure your presentation is within this time limit to have time for feedback.

Moderators are asked to strictly adhere to the time limit set for each presenter.

A laptop with PowerPoint and Adobe Acrobat Reader will be available for your presentation. Please bring your presentation on a flash drive.  Have it ready for your moderator to “load up” before the beginning of your session!

Dorfman winners will be announced at the annual meeting. They must be available to present their paper, and are expected to be in attendance for the entire meeting.

The preliminary meeting program should be posted on www.wria.org by December 1st.

Please note, this year’s meeting is running from Wednesday through Saturday.
