timely manner to ensure a spot. The morning's events are from 8:50 am to 12:00 pm with a trip to the State Capitol in the afternoon. Registration fees will include a box lunch.
New this year: The city parking garage is right across the street. It has
over 500 spots. The entrance is on East 2nd between Locust and
Grand. The cost is $1/hour and can be paid with credit card as they leave or
using a kiosk in the east stairwell (farthest away from the hotel). Meter parking still surrounds the hotel. With the
opening of the parking garage, both Locust and Walnut Street meters have been
opened back up to the public. The Grand Ave bridge is open and has two lanes of
traffic open. There is no parking on that bridge, yet.
will need to take the D-Line Shuttle or another Dart bus to the
Capitol. There are 2 Dart buses that stop right by the Embassy and will
drop you off at 12th & Grand. The cost for those is fifty cents
one way. The Embassy Suites will not be
providing transportation to the Capitol. The Capitol Complex bus
(D-Line) circles the Capitol Complex and is at no cost to its riders.
We encourage you to take the D-Line shuttle or walk to the Capitol to meet with your legislator.
