Who Should Attend

This retreat is for CEDs only. Attendance is voluntary and not required for chapter recertification. 

Ideas to Reduce Your Expenses

  • Share a room.  Ask one of your fellow CEDs to split a room with you to reduce your hotel expense.  If you are interested in sharing a room, but not sure who to ask, let us know and we'll work to pair you up with someone.
  • Use hotel points.  Some of you may receive meeting planner points from hotels you use for chapter events.  These may be an option to pay for a portion of your hotel expenses. 
  • Air miles/credit card points.

Note: If you stay in a hotel other than the Hyatt House, you will be responsible for your own transportation to the national office.  


If you choose to arrive a few days early or stay after the Retreat to see the sites of Washington, DC here are some things to consider.

  • Rate is valid 3 days pre/post event on availability. Guests must call the hotel directly if they want to extend their stay. The reservation link will not offer the extended dates. Rate is based on availability.
