- Can I register more than one person at a time?Yes. If your attendees are registering at the same level (i.e., all NALMS Members or all students or all non-members) you may register them at the same time, on one invoice. To do this, complete your first registration, and then use the “Add Guest” feature to begin registering your next attendee.
- What if I’m registering more than one person and they have different registration types?If you are registering more than one person and they have different registration types, you will need to complete your registration process – either paying online or requesting an invoice – before beginning another. You will see a button labeled “New Registration” – select that to begin the next attendee’s registration form.
- Can I request an invoice, or do I need to pay online when I register?You may request an invoice when you get to the payments page. To do this, select the “Invoice Me” option and an invoice will automatically be emailed to you. You may choose to pay offline via check or money order, or you may pay online at a later time using the link provided in the invoice.
- My spouse or partner is planning to join, but will not be attending the technical sessions. Is there a registration option for them?Yes! There is a reduced-rate option for spouses, significant others, and other guests who are not planning on attending the technical sessions. These individuals have access to the exhibit hall, meals, and, if registered for these add-ons, special events and workshops. Choose the Guest Registration option when registering.
- Do you offer registration options for online-only attendance?We will offer online-only attendance options and will open registration for those options in the fall. The online program will consist of pre-recorded content only with no live sessions.
- How do I get from the airport to the hotel?
The Minneapolis Marriott City Center does not offer airport shuttle service. We recommend that attendees take the Metro Transit Blue Line light rail from MSP to the Nicolett Mall Station and take the short walk to the Minneapolis Marriott City Center.
- Metro Transit has light rail stations in both airport terminals.
- Trains run most of the day every 10 minutes during peak hours and typically every 10 to 15 minutes at other times of the day. From the airport, trains can take you to the Warehouse District in downtown Minneapolis in about 25 minutes. Schedule details are available on the Metro Transit website.
- The Nicolett Mall Station is a short 5-minute / approximately 3-block walk from the Minneapolis Marriott City Center.
- Fares are good for 2.5 hours and cost $2.00 non-rush hour / $2.50 rush hour. Buy a ticket from the machine on the platform with cash, credit or debit cards – just remember to pay before boarding. While onboard, be ready to show your proof of payment: your ticket or the Metro Transit app
- Will I be safe when I'm in Minneapolis?Local law enforcement works hard to ensure the safety and well-being of residents, workers and visitors to Minneapolis. In addition, MPD, Metro Transit Police and the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Department work together, as needed, with a common goal of keeping our city safe. Plus, community and business leaders throughout the city work together on multiple initiatives to help ensure a safe environment for visitors and residents. This includes easily identifiable Downtown Improvement District (DID) Ambassadors who help visitors with directions and information, providing roughly 89,000 pedestrian assists each year. Additionally, Minneapolis downtown partners are connected to a Safety Communications Center which is located in the Minneapolis Police Department’s First Precinct and focuses on rapid responses for inquiries or incidents when needed.
- What was the result of the state's investigation into the Minneapolis Police Department?On April 27, 2022, the Minnesota Department of Human Rights released its findings from a nearly two-year investigation into the Minneapolis Police Department – a probe launched days after the murder of George Floyd. The investigation found that the City of Minneapolis and the Minneapolis Police Department engage in a pattern or practice of race discrimination in violation of the Minnesota Human Rights Act.
- What are the next steps following the findings of the state's investigation into the Minneapolis Police Department?Moving forward, the Minnesota Department of Human Rights will work with the City of Minneapolis to develop a consent decree, which is a court-enforceable agreement that identifies specific changes to be made and timelines for those changes to occur. As part of this process, the Minnesota Department of Human Rights will meet with community members, Minneapolis Police Department officers, City staff, and other stakeholders to gather feedback on what should be included in a consent decree to address racial discrimination in policing in Minneapolis.
