All-East Hotel Reminder

From All-East site chair Chris Clift:

ETVA members, if you haven’t already booked your rooms for All East in the Maryville area, please do so as soon as you can. Some hotels are approaching their cut-off dates, some as soon as only a few days from now. I know for sure the Treemont Inn will open their special rate rooms back to the public next week. We have negotiated these special rates for you, so please take advantage while you can.  The contact information for all the hotels giving us special rates are here.


Due to the fact that I have been out of town a great deal over the past several weeks I have not been able to send invoices for either membership renewals or for audition registrations.  Beginning the week after auditions I will be sending out invoices to those who have not been invoiced for their membership and I will invoice all who have registered students for auditions.

  2. When editing your All-East registrations (via the “Edit Your Response” link in your email receipt from Google Forms), use “DROP” in the Name fields of students that you want to remove from your original registration.  You may edit your registration up until the registration deadline.
