Santa Fe CLE Roundup & Annual Awards Dinner

Dicky Grigg has once again gathered speakers that will leave you informed, entertained, pondering and happy that you attended.

Remember that booking your room and registering to attend our events are TWO DIFFERENT THINGS, so be sure you take care of them both.

Our block of rooms is currently sold out, but please get on the WAIT LIST.

Here is what we suggest:

  1. Get on the WAIT LIST by contacting Ms. Elissa Eccles at eeccles@hhandr.com or call her at 505-984-7909
  2. Make a reservation at nearby hotels including two “sister” hotels, both of which are “boutique” hotels, or a favorite hotel of yours:
    1. Hotel Chimayo de Santa Fe – 505-988-4900
    2. Hotel St. Francis –   800-529-5700
    3.  La Fonda on the Plaza (just behind our hotel) – we have a courtesy block of rooms at $199++ per night. Mention TEX-ABOTA for the group rate. Call 800-523-5002.
      Important: if you book a room at Inn & Spa at Loretto, and have to cancel within 30 days of the event, do NOT cancel directly with the hotel. Please let Cay Dickson know before you cancel your room. We can use it for someone who is unable to get a room.
      The deadline to register for the CLE program is Friday, May 25th.
