Programs for new OHA members and meeting attendees

You will be connected to a veteran OHA member who will meet with you informally at the conference.  Take advantage of this program to get connected to OHA in Madison. You are also invited to the Newcomers Breakfast, a complimentary continental breakfast on Friday morning with OHA leadership.

Conference Housing Options

To receive the group rate, you will need to make a reservation through the OHA link or the phone number listed.  If you make a reservation by phone, please identify yourself as an OHA meeting attendee to make certain you receive the group rate. Please note that the weekend of our conference is a home football game for the University of Wisconsin. Reserve your hotel rooms as early as possible.

The conference will be held at the Madison Concourse Hotel. OHA has a block of rooms available for reservations with a group rate of $147 for single and double occupancy rooms, $157 for triple and quad occupancy.  To make a hotel reservation by phone, call Madison Concourse Hotel reservations at 1-800-356-8293. You must request the OHA annual meeting room block (ID #216189) to receive the discounted room rate.

We also have a block of rooms reserved at the Sheraton Madison Hotel, a hotel on the bus line which is about two miles from the Concourse. The group rate is $129 for single, double, triple, or quad occupancy.

Madison has one hostel, HI-Madison Wisconsin. It is near Capitol Square and easy walking distance to the Madison Concourse Hotel. Rates vary based on room type but are very affordable.



Conference meals are on your own–the registration fee does not include meals.  When you register, you will have the opportunity to sign up and pay for the two meal events OHA offers–Friday lunch with a keynote speaker and the Saturday evening awards banquet and keynote address. You may attend both events at no charge after the meal if you prefer. There are numerous affordable places to eat within walking distance of the Madison Concourse Hotel as well as a coffee shop and full restaurant in the hotel.
