Dear Transit Colleague:

 

There have been several inquiries about the hotel reservations associated with the FTA Civil Rights Training Workshop that will be held here in Philadelphia, PA on September 19-21, 2007.  Please see the response below we received from our Headquarters Office concerning updated hotel information:

 

The contractor stated that the Loews Hotel made an error when they set up the room block.  Loews set it up to state that they would be receiving a list with the names of the registrants as opposed to individual bookings.  Loews is in the process of correcting the problem and if anyone made reservations and did not get the reduced rate, please call the hotel back to get the reduced rate.  If you still have any problems, contact Marc Hall at (202) 530-0551 X305 and he should be able to get it fixed for you.

 

We did not include the Registration Packet in this email that was included in the original Mass Mailout.  If you should need the Registration Packet sent to you again please send an email to ann.dolecki@dot.gov and she will forward one to you.

 

Please feel free to distribute this throughout your organization as appropriate.

 

Sincerely,

 

 

Letitia A. Thompson

Regional Administrator
