Rooms are blocked at both the Holiday Inn Express (20 rooms) and the Econo Lodge (20 rooms) in Sioux Center. Both hotels have more room, they just don’t allow to block more. Note cut-off date below.

We will provide basic shuttle service from both Sioux Falls and Sioux City airports for Thursday afternoon. We will gather flight information, and leave both airports about 2 hours before activities start on campus. I will have a shuttle for board members available if needed to make it to the board meeting. All flight info for those that desire a shuttle should be emailed to [email protected]

For Saturday, there will be a shuttle available that leaves for Sioux Falls or Sioux City for those that need it. We are planning to leave when the conference finishes, so flights should be leaving no earlier than 3 hours after the conference ends.
