ALERT:  Please be aware of this scam happening to other groups.  AAVLD and USAHA DO NOT USE A HOUSING BUREAU.  If any members are contacted by a company claiming to be the official housing bureau for AAVLD and USAHA DO NOT volunteer any information.  They may tell you the room block is sold out and quote a rate at another hotel, claiming that this is an official room block and that members must reserve through them to get discounted rates.  Our first priority is the security of our members' information.   Ask for a contact name and phone number and report it to Jackie@planningconnection.com
