General Information - NFBPA Executive Leadership Institute - March 2016
Transportation from and to the airport (Kansas City, Missouri [MCI]) is your responsibility. Discussing your arrival times among your group members may permit discounted shuttle service and carpooling with rental cars. The drive is one hour from Kansas City to Lawrence.
Shuttle suggestions (in alphabetical order):
We strongly recommend calling ahead of time to make a reservation.
For those renting cars, we encourage you to use the Valet parking at the Oread Hotel since parking in the closest garage is $1.75 for the first hour, then $1.50 an hour, 24 hours a day.
The hotel is within walking distance of our meeting space on campus.
Remember: you will be traveling to Kansas in March, when the average temperatures range from 32-55 degrees. Also, it may be helpful to dress in layers since conference room temperatures can fluctuate.
ELI sessions will be held in the Kansas Union on the KU campus. The Union is within walking distance from the hotel.
On Thursday, we will discuss your results from the StrengthsFinder Assessment. In an email from Alecia, you received a code to access the assessment and will need to spend 25-30 minutes taking the assessment prior to your arrival at KU.
Wi-Fi Access: To use the campus WiFi network, log in as KU Guest.
KU Bookstore: Reserve some of your down-time to check out the large selection of KU gear and gifts or pick up a book for the flight home. The bookstore is located on Level Two of the Union.
Printing Location: Jayhawk Ink, which is on Level 2 of the Union (tucked into the general book section of the Bookstore), is happy to assist!
When you check in to the Oread Hotel, you will receive a hotel breakfast voucher worth up to $10 for each morning of your stay. Beverages will be available in the classroom.
Lunch will be in the Kansas Union.
Dinner is on your own except Friday night.
Special dietary needs are easiest to accommodate if we know about them 24 hours prior to a meal. Please let us know if we can help you.
