Conference Updates as of 03-03-2023
1. Registration is OPEN... and interest in the conference is HIGH this year.
2. There is an issue with the confirmation emails from Salishan. While they have waived the $35/night amenity fee, their emails indicate that people are going to be charged that fee. That is NOT the case. This is an issue with their automated email system. We have been assured you will not pay that fee and can ignore it. Only the room rate + tax will be charged. 
3. Our room block at Salishan is sold out. That happened quickly this year. If you would like to be placed on a waiting list for canceled rooms there, please email us at and let us know.
4. We have an overflow hotel - Best Western Plus Landmark Inn in nearby Lincoln City. We have used this as an overflow for several years and the reviews have always been good. Call them at 541-994-6060 and ask for the OSROA conference rate of $197.99 + tax/night. 
Also... not conference-related, but NASRO is offering the following upcoming SRO training courses in Oregon:
Lincoln City / April 19-21, 2023 -- Advanced SRO course
Independence / August 14-18, 2023 -- Basic SRO course
