The Value of Membership

"I could not have survived 30 years in school business without the support I've received from ASBO. No matter how much you may think your problem is unique, it's not. I've always found support from colleagues facing the same issues no matter where they work, and I've shared solutions. We have a lot to learn from one another, so I value my memberships in Tri-State ASBO, New Hampshire ASBO, Vermont ASBO, and ASBO International."

Attendees, reserve your room online or call 877.491.0442 and mention ASBO International.

* Rate includes WiFi, bottled water, and more to ensure your stay is comfortable. Hotel occupancy tax not included.

Discounted Dining

We realize that school business officials who travel for professional development opportunities must do so on a limited budget, so the hotel is extending a 10% discount to registered attendees at a variety of dining outlets within the Gaylord Palms. Get the locations and discount instructions here.

Hotel Cancellation Policy

Should a guest cancel a reservation, the deposit will be refunded if the notice is received at least three (3) working days or 72 hours prior to arrival, and a cancellation number is obtained.

We kindly ask that you make your hotel reservations at the contracted hotel (the Gaylord Palms Hotel). ASBO International is committed to contractual obligations in order to bring the guest room rates down from regular pricing. If you stay at a hotel other than the ASBO conference hotel, we may fall short of our housing obligations and will be responsible for paying lost income to our hotel. This would mean higher registration fees and fewer benefits for attendees.

Please be aware of companies inaccurately representing themselves as an ASBO International “housing company” offering to make hotel reservations within the ASBO International block. Some companies will misrepresent that they are calling from the hotel. Clicking on the above link or calling the number provided on this page will prevent hotel piracy scams and ensure your booking is secure.
