AAS Warns of Pirate Housing Groups

Tuesday, September 25, 2012 - 13:23

A housing pirate is an unauthorized housing provider that often claims a vague affiliation with a conference and offers reduced rates to attendees. The AAS Executive Office is the official housing bureau for the 221st AAS Meeting in Long Beach, CA and only they can guarantee room reservations and rates.

Be careful when entering into a financial agreement with any unofficial companies, as their legitimacy and policies may be questionable and show management will not be able to provide a resolution to issues related to such reservations. If another company besides the AAS contacts you, please contact the AAS Executive Office immediately at 202-328-2010 x106. Use the link below to ensure your reservation.
