Greetings from Seattle:

Final preparations are underway for the 19th Annual Summer Political Methodology Meetings. A preliminary program for the meeting is posted at the conference Web site (www.csss.washington.edu/polmeth). The purpose of this quick note is to encourage you to:

  1. Confirm you conference participation via the Web form at http://web.polmeth.ufl.edu/confirm2002.html
  2. Faculty must register immediately for the conference by sending your $150 registration fee to
    Janet M. Box-Steffensmeier
    1492 Eastmeadow
    Columbus, OH 43235
    jboxstef+@osu.edu
    Make checks out to APSA "Organized Section on Political Methodology".
  3. If you have previously requested a hotel, you need to make your reservations quickly. Hotel accommodations are at your own cost. We have contracted with two excellent, close hotels for blocs of rooms. The deadline for reserving these rooms is end of business on June 10, 2002. If you do not reserve on of these rooms, you will need to find your own accommodations. Historically, it has been difficult to find accommodations in Seattle in July, especially at rates as low as these. The two options are:
    1. The Watertown Hotel, 4242 Roosevelt, a new hotel 3 blocks from the University, in the UDistrict, has held a bloc of 15 rooms at $119. This includes a continental breakfast. All rooms are non-smoking. Mention the Political Methodology Meetings when reserving your room. The Web site is http://www.watertownseattle.com. You may call 206.632.5055 (from 9am to 5pm, PST this week) for reservations; after the hotel opens next week, please call their direct number: 206.826.4242. There is free, underground parking at the hotel.
    2. The Silvercloud Inn, University Village, 5036 25th Avenue NE, Seattle, WA, 98105 also has a bloc of 15 rooms at $99. This includes a continental breakfast. This hotel is located near the university, about three blocks away, near the University Village shopping mall. The hotel has free parking and a free shuttle to the University (and other locations). The Web site is http://www.scinns.com/universi.htm. You may make reservations by calling 1.800.205.6940. Mention the Political Methodology Meetings or POLMETH when reserving your room.
  4. If you have requested accommodations in Haggett Hall-a dormitory overlooking Lake Washington, you need to send to us a confirmation email (polmeth@stat.washington.edu). Accommodations during the conference (Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday), including meals, will be paid by University of Washington. If you have an early arrival or late departure, you will need to pay for this directly to CSSS prior to check-in (A check to CSSS-University of Washington, should be sent to Erin de la Mare, CSSS, Box 354320, Padelford Hall, C 14, University of Washington, Seattle, WA 98195-4320). Early/Late departure rates, per night (no meals) are $27 for a double and $41.50 for a single room. If you requested a single room, you will also have to pay the additional $58 for the Wednesday-Friday period. Please note, that the supply of single rooms is limited; and roommate requests will be honored where possible. By June 10th, you need to send a confirmation email to us at polmeth@stat.washington.edu. Early and late arrivals will not be available except though advance arrangements; you will not be able to request this once you arrive in Seattle. The confirmation email must have the following information. Just clip it and ship it.

  6. These deadlines are real. Both blocs of hotel rooms will disappear on the 10th of June. We also have to get a list of names to the dormitory administrators by June 10th. Sorry for the short notice.
  7. Bookmark the conference Web site. We will be posting a variety of information about the conference and activities in Seattle in the next days and over the run up until the conference. The preliminary program is already posted.
