WEA Hotel: Hilton Orlando. As in the past, double occupancy versus single occupancy will be a decision made at the local level. WEA will be sharing this hotel with Arkansas,California and Connecticut. Local and Council Presidents will receive an email with the contact information of WEA's reservation team at the Hilton Orlando to make their local delegates lodging reservations. WEA will make arrangements for state delegates lodging.

This document will be distributed at the first caucus meeting and discussed and approved by the delegates in attendance.

Flights to Orlando: Before booking any airline reservations for your delegates, please ensure that they meet the COVID-19 protocols below in order to be able to attend in-person and will be choosing to attend the assembly in-person rather than virtual.
