FANHS CONFERENCE DEADLINES
Although the Conference is in July, please note that there are early deadlines for this event. Also as of Feb. 7, most of the cheap flights to Honolulu are almost sold out. The remaining cheap flights are too long. Look into Delta and Southwest. They still have cheap flights left. United is almost sold out. Of course, you can always pay for the regular prices which are more expensive.
Before you click on this link: CONFERENCE, read below. I had a hard time finding the info.
On the upper left hand of that page, you will find 3 blue bars (too tiny). Click that and you will find the menu on the right. Click the PLUS SIGN (+) of the “2020 Conference.” It will give you links to registration, call for papers, tours, etc.
Hawaii Tour on July 15 is a separate activity and payment (Fee has not been posted yet. STAY TUNED). Tour starts at 7 am. If you want to join, it is better to arrive the day before. More details on: TOUR.
BOOKING A ROOM AT WAIKIKI BEACH MARRIOTT
The group rate is $248 plus 37 (resort fee) and 37.10 (tax of 10.25% plus 4.712 excise tax or total of 14.962% of $428) per night. The TOTAL per night is $322.10. To get this rate, call the hotel 1-808-922-6611. Tell them you need a PASS KEY RESERVATION (they will ask for dates: July 14 to 18) and tell them you are attending the Filipino American National Historical Society Conference. You have to book through the phone because their website does not have a Group Code. If you don’t inform them about the PASS KEY RESERVATION, the rate is around $352 plus tax & resort fee is around $442 a night. As of Feb. 7, 2019, only 5 rooms are available for those coming in on Tuesday. There are still 150 rooms available from Wed to Sunday.
