Annual Conference Scam Reminder

FRA staff, members and those interested in the annual conference have received  several scam calls and emails  regarding hotel reservations and rates.

The scammers have asked for conference information, hotel details and contact information, so you can sign-up for a "special rate." Please do not give them any of this information. 

If you are contacted by anyone other than a FRA representative regarding hotel reservations for the conference (via phone OR email),  please disregard the contact as it will be a scam.
