    "The Society/Chapter has negotiated a special discounted room rate (room-block) with the hotel. Your patronage of this meeting hotel makes it possible for the Society/Chapter to secure the space necessary for this event at a greatly reduced cost. The hotel not only offers a discounted rate and the best networking opportunities, but staying in the group block helps the Society/Chapter meet its obligation to the hotel, avoid penalties, and keep meeting registration prices down.  Any attendee that does not book under the UHMS room block, will not receive the special discounted amenities."
