To take full advantage of the convention, delegates who live outside the Indianapolis area are encouraged to stay at the J.W. Marriott, the sanctioned and officially designated JEA/NSPA convention hotel.

The official housing agent for this year’s convention is A Room With A View. You can reach A Room With A View at 1-800-780-4343, Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Central time, or by emailing

A Room With A View will require the following information when calling :

  • Name of adviser
  • Name of school / organization
  • Business telephone number / mobile telephone number
  • Email address
  • Number of rooms you are requesting (including number of king-bedded rooms and number of double-bedded rooms)
  • Method of payment (cash, credit card or school check)
  • If part of a school contingent, the date your school opens for classes
  • Special needs / requests
  • Arrival time

Names of attendees will not be required at the time of processing, however, a firm commitment of rooms and names will be due by Oct. 1, 2016. A Room With A View will briefly communicate all policies, procedures and deadlines for this year’s event and will email you written confirmation of your rooms and the above mentioned policies

Please realize that although an Oct. 15, 2016, deadline for reservations has been set, neither the hotel nor JEA/ NSPA can guarantee availability.

UPDATE: Now that the deadline to submit rooming lists for hotel reservations has passed, things are settling down nicely. Between the J.W. Marriott and our overflow hotels there’s plenty of room for everyone, so if you’ve been waiting to register for the convention because you were uncertain of the housing and transportation issues, worry no more. There’s plenty of room for everyone, and if you are in one of the airport overflow hotels, transportation will be provided. Rooms are available so register now. Early-bird registration ends October 19.

Details and a bus run schedule will be posted as soon as they are finalized, but know buses will run in the morning and in the afternoon/evening. Staffs will want to be prepared to spend the entire day at the convention hotel and should bring any materials (like write-off contest materials) with them in the morning.
