If you have a question that is not addressed below, please email Sara at sara.sterley@mjsorority.com, and I will add it to the list below so that others can benefit from it as well.

What does MJ pay for?

Just to clarify, MJ covers the cost for travel, meals, programming, and lodging for three attendees per MJ client. In the past, we have had a nominal additional fee for additional attendees over the three MJ covers. This year, that additional programming/meal fee is waived, in hopes of incentivizing our clients to bring more individuals responsible for the housing and employment areas of your operations.

MJ does not cover any costs for organizations who are not currently clients of MJ, but those organizations are welcome to join us at a cost of $500 per attendee.

How do we make sure our organizations are reimbursed?

In order to make the registration process more streamlined, we are asking that you make your own hotel and airfare reservations and then complete an expense report for those charges to be reimbursed. 

Once you have expenses that need to be reimbursed, (airfare, hotel room charge or mileage reimbursal for those close enough to drive to Indianapolis), please complete this expense report. Contact jessica.gunter@mjsorority.com with any questions about your expense report.

How should we prepare for the MJ Housing Forum?

Rest up for a full few days! We are planning a very robust agenda, but the true value in the Housing Forum is the networking and sharing among your NPC colleagues. In addition, please feel free to bring resources or ideas to share with your colleagues during some of our breakout sessions.

Additionally, we have many business partners in attendance who stand ready to help you take your organization’s housing to the next level. Check back to this page for a listing of sponsors and their contact information, so that you can plan meetings ahead of time if desired.

We encourage you to come prepared to share, ask questions, and make new friends!

How should we get to the hotel from the airport?

The hotel does not offer shuttle service, but in addition to taxis or Uber options from the airport, Carey makes it easy to reserve transportation to and from the airport. Refer to the airport’s website for additional information on rental cars, shared ride services, and taxis.

We encourage you to share rides with other Housing Forum attendees to keep the costs down. Check the Housing Forum group on Facebook or email the listserv at mjhousing@googlegroups.com to coordinate.

What is the attire?

Attire is business casual throughout the meeting.

What is the hotel rate?

We have secured a rate of $139 per night plus taxes for the MJ Housing Forum. In order to receive the preferred rate, you must make your reservation prior to February 5, 2020. MJ clients will only be reimbursed for the block rate.
