*Note regarding lodging
CCASA is not providing a host hotel this year. Attendees in need of lodging are required to make their own arraignments at a hotel of their choosing. To make this easier for folks not familiar with the Denver/Metro area, our Policy Intern has created a short list of hotels within 5 miles of downtown Denver that offer rooms at a rate in line with the federal lodging reimbursement limit for Denver which is $163 per night maximum. Reminder, this is a list of possible hotels and CCASA does not endorse any specific hotel.
