Beware of Housing Scams

If you receive a call from someone claiming to be from the Omni Shoreham, this is a scam! The hotel will never call NCSE members, attendees, exhibitors, or sponsors to encourage booking. If you receive a call regarding Annual Conference housing, do not book a room. You may arrive at the Omni Shoreham and discover that you do not have a room. Never book a room from an email that does not come from an ncseglobal.org email address.
