Deadline for Special SAGEEP Conference Rate Extended!

Please note:  Conference organizers have successfully negotiated an extension of the deadline to make hotel reservations at the Marriott DTC at SAGEEP rates.  In view of the disruption the government's sequester has had on travel planning, the Marriott has approved this special extension to allow those affected additional time to continue making their travel arrangements in the event the sequestration is avoided.
