  • Reagan National (DCA) is the closest airport to the ACR Annual Meeting
  • Morin Fellows should reserve rooms at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park for the DC visit
  • You may rent a car, but we recommend taking public transportation or using ride-sharing services to avoid the metro area traffic
  • Travel arrangements must be made and expense reports must be submitted through the Concur portal (ACR needs receipts for anything over $50) – ACR accounting will work with you to create an account
