Welcome to Dallas in 2007! 



ATFE welcomes you to Texas for the upcoming January Biennial.  Texas, while not always warm in January, is usually warmer than Toronto, Chicago, or Boston, and lends itself for nice walks outside of the hotel.  The Adams Mark Hotel is walking distance from the Dallas Museum of Art, the Nasher Sculpture Center, The Meyerson Symphony Center, and Thanks-Giving Square, an interfaith chapel.   By Dart Rail (our light rail) you are two stops away from The Sixth Floor Museum, dedicated to the memory of J.F. Kennedy and the events of the day of his assassination, restaurants and the Dallas Aquarium.  We also are the home of the Mavericks (‘dream team’) professional basketball team and the American Airlines Arena is close by. 


We hope you enjoy your stay and plan ahead through the various websites of these venues to make the most of your free time in Dallas.


We also have First Presbyterian Church, First United Methodist Church, The Cathedral of Guadalupe, St. Paul United Methodist Church, and First Baptist Church in walking distance, with other worship possibilities through light rail available for those of you staying over on Sunday.


If you haven’t done so already, please be sure to go the ATFE website to register on-line (www.atfe.org).  Also, don’t forget to send in either the $150 deposit or registration of $250 by December 15, 2006, in order to pay at the early registration rate.  Payments postmarked after December 15 will be at the registration rate of $300.

If you have sent in a registration deposit of $150 to hold your early registration rate, please remember that full payment is due JANUARY 9, 2006.

Lastly, do not forget to make your hotel reservations directly with the Adams Mark Hotel, 1-888-444-ADAM and say “ATFE 2007” for the group rate.
