Messengers to the 2010

Baptist State Convention of North Carolina (BSC) annual meeting will be able to

stay at the headquarters hotel, the Sheraton Four Seasons in Greensboro, for a

discounted rate of $99 per night, $112.61 including tax.

This pre-pay rate, which is

the same for king and double rooms, is only available at the BSC annual meeting

web site. Reservations cannot be

made by calling the Sheraton or the BSC. A reservation is refundable if notice

of cancellation is given at least 24 hours prior to time of check-in.

All messengers staying at

the Sheraton receive free wireless Internet.

This year’s annual meeting

will be held, as it was last year, at the Koury Convention Center in

Greensboro. The Sheraton Hotel is located on the

same property as the Convention Center.

High participation by messengers

rooming at the hotel will keep ancillary costs of the other meeting spaces

down.

“By staying at the Sheraton,

messengers have everything — their hotel room and access to all the meeting

halls — under one roof,” said John Butler, BSC executive leader for business

services. “You never have to leave the convention center. I believe North

Carolina Baptists who stay at the Sheraton will find this set up very

convenient.”

Butler also said making room

reservations online, as opposed to mail-in registration or even phone and

e-mail registration, greatly reduces cost and time spent by staff processing

the reservations.

Reservation deadline is Oct.

31.

Reservations made after Oct. 31 must be made directly with the Sheraton

Hotel at their normal rate.
