Beware of Unauthorized Hotel Service Providers
It has come to our attention that several exhibitors, attendees, and members have been contacted by housing vendors who are offering to provide room rates and hotel services for JMIH. These companies are NOT affiliated with JMIH!

Attendees and exhibitors should be cautious of companies that:
• Call you directly and claim they are official housing partners and have the best rates for Phoenix. JMIH will never call you directly to solicit hotel reservations.
• Claim to be affiliated with JMIH by offering discounted hotel rates, which often can be too good to be true.
• Ask you to provide your contact information and credit card details and require full prepayment in advance.
• Claim to have availability at their advertised hotels, but may take the money for the rooms, then later cancel without refunding to you.


At the 1997 meetings in Seattle, it was decided that the Environmental Quality Committee (now the Conservation Committee) would develop recommendations to minimize the environmental impact of the Society’s activities. The committee has developed a list of possible actions relating to the annual meeting that can be implemented with minimal inconvenience to the organizing committee and to the membership at large. Many of these suggested actions are dependent on a decision by the Society as to whether and how much members are willing to trade off convenience for cost in the process of reducing environmental impacts (fortunately, many proposed actions are actually money-savers). Our objective in these “greening” efforts is to fulfill the general mission of the annual meeting in the most efficient, environmentally sound, and economic manner possible. For additional information about the ASIH Conservation Committee, contact Matthew Craig.

This year’s efforts in greening the meeting will include:

  • Eliminate disposable plastic products to every extent possible.
  • Use clip-on name tags that can be recycled. The name tag will be clipped to a recycled lanyard.
  • Eliminate the meeting bag.
  • Use only organic shirts for meeting T-shirts.
  • Create a voluntary carbon-offset option as a check-off on the registration form. Individuals can contribute $10, or $20 to a local conservation organization to be selected by the local committee.


Tshirt This year’s T-shirts will be shipped directly to your home address whether you are attending virtually or in person. There will be no selling of or handing out shirts onsite. Order your shirt before July 31 at this link. Take advantage of the early registration window, shirts will only be available until July 31.


Casual dress is appropriate throughout the meeting. For comfort in the air-conditioned meeting rooms, a light jacket or sweater is suggested.
