Note: The deadline for proposals for new standards
or changes to existing standards is 45 days prior to the
commencement of the meetings. The deadline
for all proposals was Friday, 13 August 2010.
All proposals have been posted to the appropriate committee pages.
Comments or suggested modifications of proposals shall be sent
to the proponent of the proposal at least 20 days prior to the
commencement of the meeting.
The meetings will take place at the
Providence Hotel at 5 Avenue of the Arts in
downtown Providence. The group rate for the meeting is $139 per night (single/double) for a standard guestroom.
Other room types are available at discounted rates for meeting
attendees. State and Federal government rates may be available to
those who qualify. Each person is responsible for making his or her
own hotel reservations. The cut-off date for hotel
reservations has passed, but rooms may be available at the hotel's
regular rates. Please note that AWPA receives
discounts and complimentary meeting room space if our attendees
are staying at the host hotel, enabling AWPA to keep its
registration fees at relatively low rates. For this reason, we
encourage you to stay at the Renaissance Providence Hotel. You
may reserve a room by clicking the link below, or by calling the
hotel toll-free at 1-866-630-0704 (1-401-919-5000 direct) and
asking for the American Wood Protection Association rate.
Registration is open to any person who wishes to attend the
meetings. AWPA members, however, may register at deeply
discounted rates. If you are a non-member and wish to join
AWPA so that you may take advantage of the member rate, please
here for more information on AWPA membership. (A new
membership for the remainder of 2010 costs only $85.00 USD.)
Registration entitles one to attend all technical committee
meetings and the nightly AWPA hospitality suite. Meals are not
included. Please note that registering for the meeting does
not reserve a room for you at the hotel. You must make your
hotel reservations individually.
