SIAM has selected Travel Leaders to assist attendees in making travel arrangements. To book your reservations through Travel Leaders , contact Amy Hueber at 215-643-6585. Be sure to mention that you are attending the IS/LS Conference in Boston. Travel Leaders will issue your ticket and mail it to you.

No matter how you choose to book your flight reservations, please be advised that SIAM has enrolled in US Airways Corporate Dividends Program. The SIAM US Airways membership number is CDN125335.
