Registration Deadline was August 1st, 2013.  Online Registration Is CLOSED.  Registrations cover both days (Friday, August 9th and Saturday August 10th).  There are no single day rates.  “Walk ins” and registered attendees that submit payment “after the deadline” will not be turned away, but cannot be processed online, must be paid by a check, money order or cash (brought to the conference) and may not be guaranteed all amenities.  Refunds will not be honored after the deadline. Bottom line, please register and pay before the deadline so we can plan accordingly and not have to chase anyone down.  These measures help keep costs affordable for all.  🙂

We are not handling lodging this year. However, discounted block room rates have been negotiated with the Ramada Inn and Conference Center at the rate of $79 +tax for August 9th & 10th, 2013.  Guests may make reservations by contacting the hotel directly at 814-238-3001 and identifying the block of rooms held for the “PA AMR Conference”.

Lodging Deadline to book rooms is July 9th.  Reservations made after this date will be provided on a rate and space available basis according to the Ramada.


Travel scholarships, to be reimbursed for hotel stay only (at above stated rates), and may be offered in whole or part to members of non-profit community / watershed organizations and conservation districts.  Mileage and other travel costs are not being considered this year.  The PA AMR Conference Committee reserves the right to award scholarships on demonstrated need, distance, and availability of funding.  We will be accepting scholarship requests up until August 2nd.  Scholarship awardees will be notified following this deadline.  

New this year,  scholarship awardees will be responsible to make their own reservation by the lodging deadline (stated above) and upon leaving the conference the base room rate will be charged to the PA AMR Conference Master account.  The PA AMR Conference Planning Committee will be providing the Ramada a list of scholarship awardees.  You will be required place your credit card on your room with the Ramada for extras and incidentals (i.e. telephone, pay-per-view, room service, and etc.), which are not the responsibility of the PA AMR Conference Committee, as the scholarship is only for the room.  Cancellation of the room  24 hours prior to stay or “no shows” will also not be the responsibility of the PA AMR Conference Committee and will be billed to the contact information provided on the scholarship application form.  

A second scholarship is available as a 1/2 price break on the regular registration to non-profits as well (i.e. $40 instead of $80).  Both are case by case committee decisions and may take time for a consensus, please plan ahead.  There will be no reimbursement forms this year as there will be no “up front” cost to the scholarship awardees. 

Please contact Robert Hughes at 570-371-3523, for details and to receive the scholarship application form.
