2017 Fall Leadership Meeting

10/29/2017 - 11/02/2017

Downtown AnnapolisWhere: Annapolis, Maryland

Lodging will be available through the Historic Inns of Annapolis. Pick from three historic inns that boost modern luxuries and professional service.

To make a reservation, please call Sally Curtis, Reservations Manager, at 410-216-6320.

  • Calvert House

  • Maryland Inn

  • Robert Johnson House

The Governor Calvert House is the primary check-in point for all Historic Inns of Annapolis. SCI strongly recommends booking at the Governor Calvert House.

Travel: Annapolis is accessible from any airport in the Washington metro area (DCA, IAD, BWI). However, in our experience tickets to BWI have tended to cost considerably less, and local travel from BWI to Annapolis is cheapest.

If an attendee is not renting a car, UberX will cost approximately $35 from BWI, $55 from DCA, and $85 from IAD. In addition, SuperShuttle serves all the airports as well, and reservations can be made at www.supershuttle.com
