The 2014 JACC State Convention will be held at the Burbank Marriott in Burbank, Calif. beginning Thursday, April 3 and running through Saturday, April 5, 2014.

Registration is available only to MEMBER schools. Individuals CAN NOT register; all registrations are by delegation.

The cost of registration, which does NOT include lodging, is $225 per delegate (instructor or student) for those staying at the hotel. The cost for commuters is $275 per delegate. See our commuter calculation chart to determine how many regular registrants you are allocated based on the number of rooms and number of nights you will be at the hotel.

Regular registrations must be received by  JACC by March 20, 2014. Late reservations will include a $50 per delegate late fee.

(Commuter rates are higher because much of the meeting space costs are determined by how many hotel room nights are sold by the organization.)

  • A list of names (can be finalized later)

  • Payment method (what will the final payment method be?)
  • ALL reservations MUST be held with a credit card

The convention will include an full array of on-the-spot contests (see our list of contests for details), workshops, tours and critiques. The convention concludes Saturday night with an awards banquet. Each school must send at least one student delegate to the state student meeting; one faculty delegate to the state faculty meeting and one student delegate and one faculty delegate to the general assembly meeting.
