The 2009 Federation Convention will be held May 1, 2, and 3, 2009 at the Concord Hilton in Concord, CA. The rate will be $107.00 plus applicable taxes. It is the same hotel used for the 1999 Convention celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Federation.

Located 30 miles east of San Francisco, Concord blends neighborhood living with a dynamic city center. Boasting a thriving population of 100,000+, Concord offers a stable business environment with a high quality of life in Contra Costa County, one of the fastest growing counties in the San Francisco Bay region. The Concord Hilton Hotel is located at the center of San Francisco's East Bay, just 1 mile from Buchanan Airport, 30 miles from Oakland Airport, 40 miles from San Francisco Airport.

Major highways, public transit and a local airport enable speedy travel anywhere. In addition to a convenient location adjacent to Interstate 680 and Highways 4 and 242, Concord boasts two Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) stations. Concord provides County Connection bus service, and rail travel to Sacramento via AMTRAK which is 7 miles from the Concord Hilton. Buchanan Field Airport offers executive jet and air taxi service, but no commercial flights. The hotel offers complimentary shuttle service within a 5 mile radius of the hotel; although AMTRAK pickup service may be arranged by special request. There is no parking fee, and motor homes may be parked at the hotel, but may not be used for sleeping purposes.

The hotel features 320 beautifully renovated guestrooms and luxurious suites. Additional hotel amenities include the Grissini Trattoria Italian Restaurant and Wine Bar, voted the "Best Italian Restaurant in the East Bay," the Plaza Court Lounge with spectacular views overlooking the Garden Courtyard.

While there, if shopping and entertainment are on your agenda, the Willow Shopping Center is a short walk from the hotel. The Willows has nationally known stores, dining and the Willows Theater Company.
