      Address: 1001 E. McCarty Lane, San Marcos, TX 78666

      Hotel check-in time is 4:00 p.m. Check-out time is 11 a.m.

    • You registered for Stage II at the same time as Stage I. You should have received your invoice. If you did not, please contact April at adw167@txstate.edu or 512.347.9927.

      • TJCTC will book your hotel room. The voluntary cost is $55/night for a total of $220, payable to Texas State University. 
      • Also, when checking-in, hotels require that you put a credit card down for incidental charges. We recommend using a credit card instead of a debit card as it may put a hold on your debit card and encumber funds.
      • You will pay this cost directly to TJCTC and TJCTC will book your hotel room. Do not call the hotel directly. TJCTC makes all reservations so we can guarantee the best rate.
      • If you would like to stay additional days, contact Loc at loc.le@txstate.edu. Extra days will be at the attendee’s expense and availability is not guaranteed.

      For questions about payment, please contact April at adw167@txstate.edu or 512.347.9927. 

    • Materials will be provided. Attendees will receive a binder with all of the presentation handouts. There is no need to print handouts. 

    • The hotel will provide a hot breakfast each day in the hotel lobby during each full day of course . TJCTC will provide a lunch in the program spaces, as well as breaks each day. TJCTC meals are for participants only. Additional guests can attend the Embassy Suites breakfast.

    • There is no formal dress code, but most attendees wear business casual. 

      Please remember: It can be difficult to get large meeting rooms at the right temp. They tend to be cold so bring a sweater!
