The normal EARLY BIRD registration fee for the two-day all-rail event is $329, but we make a limited number of reduced registrations for Rail Passengers Association members at $199. This includes meals and access to all presentations.
To obtain the reduced $199.00 registration, you must enter "RPA" in the Registration Code field and press enter. The reduced price will not show once the block of registrations is reached.
The conference hotel is the Hilton Garden Inn, which is attached to the Hurst Conference Center. A special rate of $119 a night is available until the room block is sold out.
"The Rail Passenger Association's recognition of the essential work done by SMART-TD members aboard Amtrak during this difficult period is appreciated. The Golden Spike Award serves as a testament to the compassion and dedication our conductors, assistant conductors and other workers exhibit constantly through times both ordinary and extraordinary."
