ACUHO-I Update - Travel Ban Repealed
California, which had been banning state-funded and state-sponsored travel since 2016 to states with laws discriminating against LGBTQIA+ people, has repealed that travel prohibition. Gov. Gavin Newsom signed State Senate Bill 447, which not only repeals the ban but also creates Project Bridge — a public awareness initiative to promote throughout the country California’s values of acceptance and inclusion of the LGBTQIA+ community.
Due to this travel ban, we are aware that many ACUHO-I members in California were unable to attend this year's content conference (Academic Initiatives, Business Operations, & Housing Facilities) in Columbus, OH on October 2-5. With the ban being lifted, we would like to offer ACUHO-I members in California with our early bird rate (2023EBCALIFORNIA) to register for the content conferences.
We are also pleased to announce that for 2023, the Thompson family has offered to fund registration awards for ACUHO-I members from small colleges/universities (up to 3,000 beds) to attend the ACUHO-I/APPA Housing Facilities Conference (Oct 2-5, 2023, in Columbus, OH). There are limited spots available and is a first come, first serve basis if applicants qualify.
The Lee Thompson Sr. (Southwest Contract) Family endowment is the ACUHO-I Research and Education Foundation’s oldest, and largest, endowment.
Apply for a registration award by completing this short application before September 20, 2023.
