FAQs for YOU
Is transportation / airfare included?
Transportation to and from Washington D.C. will be the responsibility of each registered guest. This will give you the freedom to choose the service and class of travel you prefer.
What about ground transportation?
Guests will be responsible for transportation to and from the airport and hotel. Transportation to and from [between the hotel and] the Opening Gala (approximately two city blocks apart) will be the responsibility of the registered guest.
Do I have to stay at The Hamilton Hotel?
The Conference meetings, and most meals, will be held at The Hamilton Hotel, so staying at this hotel will provide you with a more-relaxed experience. A gift bag of GIRL ATTORNEY® Shop items (a mug, pin, and sticker) will be waiting for every registrant (whether one or two to a room) who chooses the Hamilton Hotel for their stay. However, if you want to make other arrangements, that is perfectly acceptable.
Are meals included?
Nearly every meal is included; all scheduled meals (Dinner/Thurs, Breakfast & Snacks & Lunch/Friday, Breakfast & Snacks/Saturday) will be included in your registration fee. Additional meals and incidentals will be covered by the guest.
I have dietary restrictions. Can you accommodate this?
Of course! After registration, we will be in touch to make sure you have everything you need. We’ll collect dietary requests at this time and make sure your needs are met.
What if I want to come to Washington D.C. early, or stay longer?
Of course you may! In fact, if you book at the Hamilton, they are offering the discounted, room-block, rates for two days before and after the GIRL ATTORNEY® Conference dates of April 25 - 27, 2019.
What should I wear/pack?
Oh this question reminds me of a quote from Tina Fey, "If you retain nothing else, always remember the most important Rule of Beauty. 'Who cares?'” lol - and I mean it. Other than that, the only part of the schedule that is definitely dressy is Thursday night. But Girl, do YOUR dressy. We’ll be reaching out closer to the event with more details about what you might need. But for the most part, plan for professional but comfortable outfits during the day, and something a bit more fun for Thursday's dinner. And since we’ll be doing a workout-type activity that last day/the last session, you might want think about bringing athletic clothes, too.
What if I have a special need and require specific accommodations?
If you anticipate having any special needs during your time with us (i.e. you're a nursing mother, you are an expecting mother, you require wheelchair assistance, etc.), just let us know after you register so we can work with you to be sure you get what you need!
