UPDATE: The convention has been offered more space by the hotel. They will also match those wanting to go with those who have to cancel. Call the office and ask for Melissa at 816-444-6800.
The convention rate for members and female guests is $300. The rate for male guests is $200 (they will have all meals with members except for the continental breakfast on Friday and the brunch on Saturday). Bus transportation and tours of the International office are included in the fee. Additional tours to historic, shopping and entertainment destinations may be available on a “pick and pay” basis.

We are nearing 1200 registered, we can only take 1500 so we are taking down both the on line registration link and the printable form, we are asking that you call to do your registration deposit at this time so we don’t take them if we don’t have a place for you. It will be a bit more trouble depending on how fast folks call in, but we do NOT want to take it and then have to go back and tell you sorry, we are full. The Sheraton still has not given us the info to make reservations there, but we hope shortly and we’ll alert you. We have reserved 200 rooms so far so that should cover it but we will increase it again if need be. If you want to book nights before and or after the convention dates themselves, you will have to call the phone number they will give us or email them as the general reservation line will tell you those dates are full, they are not, that’s just how they are handling it. Sorry, I think it’s dumb but I don’t run the hotels. I never thought I’d have to warn you to get on it if you really wanted to come, but I think I need to. If you call and cannot get through to the right folks, we’ll do all we can to get it done for you.

WooHoo we have a link for the Sheraton if you only want the convention nights, it is www.starwoodmeeting.com/Book/BetaSigmaPhiInternational2016overflow
If you need rooms before or after the convention dates, please email this email, firstname.lastname@example.org They said: Please ask them to include their name, phone number, dates they would like to book, and if they are interested in upgraded options. Our reservation team will get back to them from 8-5pm Monday through Friday. So you should be able to make reservations with the Sheraton now.
