The Annual Meeting is a time not only to learn and share valuable take-away information but to develop and rekindle lifelong friendships as only occurs when Selected members gather.


Our reservation deadline at the Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel has passed. Members can call reservations directly at 800-333-3333 for an available room and current rate information. However, the Radisson has indicated room availability is very limited. There are several hotels within walking distance to the Radisson at various price points. TripAdvisor.com, Hotels.com, Trivago.com or any preferred hotel search website can be used to find available options.

Feel free to email Amy Hunt or call 800-323-4219 for assistance searching alternatives. 



The Radisson Blu is 18 miles (about 29 kilometers) from O’Hare International Airport and 12 miles (about 20 kilometers) from Midway International Airport.

Taxis, Uber, Lyft and car rentals including Hertz, Avis and Enterprise are all available at the airport. In addition, other options include Metra Rail or CTA as well as other local transportation sources. Visit the airport websites for additional information.
