ACCOMMODATIONS

We have arranged reduced rates available for UVM Campus Housing ($78 per night plus tax for a single room; $55.50 per person in a double room plus tax).  We will add a reservation link on the website in the coming weeks and will also email the link and information to all conference registrants.

We strongly encourage attendees to utilize the campus housing facilities to reap the benefit of lower priced housing, plus enhanced networking opportunities, offering a sense of community among attendees outside of conference hours.  

If you prefer to stay in a nearby hotel rather than campus housing, we have arranged a limited number of reduced-rate rooms at the following nearby hotel for the dates Wed. June 26 through Sun. June 30, 2019:

Courtyard Burlington Harbor Hotel
25 CHERRY STREET
BURLINGTON, VERMONT, 05401

Tel: 802.864.4700

Rate: $189 plus tax (you must reference our group - Society for Acupuncture Research - to obtain this rate)

(Courtyard Burlington Harbor Hotel room rate discount deadline: Monday, May 6, 2019)

The Courtyard Burlington Hotel is about a 20 minute walk - straight line - to the Davis Center (conference venue).  (Note: We were told that much of the walk is slightly uphill.)

Another hotel option, about a 5 minute walk from the Davis Center but on a busier street, is the Doubletree Hotel.  SAR does NOT have a discounted room rate at this hotel, but it's another nearby walking-distance option.

Doubletree by Hilton; 870 Williston Rd, South Burlington, VT 05403 -- Phone: 802.865.6600


CONTINUING EDUCATION

SAR is applying for CEUs through the California Acupuncture Board and PDAs through NCCAOM.  Details will be updated on SAR's website as available.


 

NOTE for STUDENTS and JUNIOR-LEVEL RESEARCHERS

Conference scholarships (to cover partial registration) and travel awards are available to students and junior-level researchers for this event. 

To be notified when the Scholarship Application is available, please send an email with the subject line "scholarship request" to [email protected], and we'll send a link to scholarship application instructions as soon as it's ready. 

Please do NOT register at this time if you plan to apply for a scholarship/travel award, as
applications from current conference registrants will *not* be considered for conference scholarships.  If you plan to apply for a scholarship and it is not awarded, we will extend the early registration rate for scholarship applicants who ended up missing that deadline while waiting to apply or hear back about scholarship or travel awards.

 

Conference Registration Cancellation/Refund Policy

All cancellations and requests for refunds MUST be submitted in writing. Telephone requests will not be honored. To receive a full refund of the registration fee minus a $50 administrative fee, send an email to [email protected] no later than March 29, 2019.  Requests for registration refunds received after the March 29, 2019 deadline will not be considered.  (Membership fees are not refundable.)

Refunds for 1-day registrations and add-on events (dinners, etc.) will be subject to the same fee schedule and deadlines.  Refunds will be processed within four to six weeks after the conference has concluded.
