Conference Travel and Lodging


This meeting will be an awesome retreat-style conference. We have an entire building with 40 guest rooms and our meeting space under one roof.

Our host will be the YMCA Blue Ridge Assembly, with a 1200 acre campus full of recreational opportunities.

All meals (except Saturday dinner, reserved for an outing) are included with the conference tuition and 3-night (Thurs-Sun) double occupancy lodging for the super low price of $475 ($140 single supplement) for AVH members.

Please note that single rooms will be offered on a space-available basis, in order of registration.


Air service to Asheville, the location of the nearest major airport, is available on Allegiant, Delta, American, and United, with reasonably priced car services to get you to the retreat center.  Car rentals are also available.

The retreat center is approximately 45 minutes from the airport.  Driving Directions and Map.

Sorry, no Amtrak, but it will be a beautiful drive.
