Re: Convention 2002 - London Hilton

There are two issues concerning our upcoming convention that I would like to address at this time:

Special Needs

If any of your delegates or observers have any special needs such as documents in Braille, access for persons with disabilities, hearing or visual aids, please advise us so that we can have the necessary equipment available.


We have reserved a number of rooms from Tuesday, July 16th through Saturday, July 20th inclusively. All delegates or observers paid for by UTE are expected to return home on Sunday, July 21st, 2002 . Please fax or email your reservations to Pierrette Labrie before the deadline of April 30, 2002 by using the attached pink form.

Listed below is some additional information that you might find useful:

  • All rooms are equipped with a coffee maker, hair dryer, iron and ironing board.
  • The hotel has a limited number of fridges. If you need one for medical reasons, please indicate it on the form.
  • Charges for the rooms are $119.00 per night, single or double occupancy, plus taxes (12%).
  • Check-in time is 3:00 p.m. and the check-out time is 1:00 p.m. The hotel will make reasonable efforts to accommodate early arrivals.
  • All room reservations and changes, if any, will be made by Pierrette Labrie from the National Office.

In Solidarity,

Betty Bannon

National President
