Registration for the Mothers’ Workshop held on Thursday is now closed – all seats are filled.
One East Pershing Road
Kansas City, Missouri
Reservations may be made through NOAH’s online registration portal.
The discounted attendee room rate of $134/night plus tax/fees (approximately $160.03) single/double occupancy, $144/night plus tax/fees triple occupancy (approximately $171.83), and $154/night plus tax/fees quad occupancy (approximately $183.63), is only available to registered conference attendees. After registration closes, NOAH will reconcile registered attendees against the group rooming list to confirm with the hotel those eligible to receive the discounted attendee rate – others will be charged the rack rate.
Adjoining Guest Rooms
An alternative for those requiring additional space at an affordable rate is adjoining guest rooms ($268/night plus tax/fees). If you are booking through the online portal, please book two guest rooms, add the request for adjoining rooms in the special request notes, then forward your confirmation email to firstname.lastname@example.org noting your request for adjoining rooms. On a first come, first served basis, NOAH’s group rooms coordinator at the hotel will then pre-block the adjoining rooms for our attendees. If reserving by phone, please make the request for adjoining rooms, but do follow-up with an email as described above so that we may verify that the request can be met. Please note that the configuration of available adjoining rooms is such that a two double bed room attaches to a king room. If two double bed rooms are required, adjacent rooms could be requested but they will not be adjoining.
The cut-off date for reserving rooms in the group block is 5:00pm CT on June 27, 2018.
Early Departure Fee
The hotel charges an early departure fee of $75.00 to guests who check out prior to their checkout date confirmed at check in.
If you cancel by 6:00 PM hotel time two days prior to arrival, there will be no forfeiture amount. If you cancel after 6:00 PM hotel time two days prior to arrival, the forfeiture amount will be a 1-night stay.
Late Pre-Registration CLOSES May 30th.

NOAH 2018 Conference Personal Grants
NOAH has a limited budget for conference personal grants. The Personal Grant Program helps those who, without assistance, would not be able to afford to attend the conference. Those who live nearest to the conference, and those who have never attended a conference before will receive priority for financial assistance. Applicants must contribute to the cost of attendance — the Personal Grant Program will not fund the full cost of attendance.
The 2018 Conference Personal Grant Application period is open.
Applicants are strongly encouraged to seek additional support as described in the Funding Sources Information Packet prior to applying for a personal grant.
Applications received after February 23rd are being reviewed on a rolling basis – limited funding is still available.

Come to Kansas City and be together with others in the albinism community, establish friendships, and learn about the latest albinism research.
Join us, because life really is better together!
