2016 S.O.B Fall Conference Program

2016 SOB Meeting Date Set

Larry Williams has graciously offered to host our meeting at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) September 23-25, 2016.  

There will be a block of rooms available at the Courtyard by Marriott Lincoln Downtown/Haymarket.  808 R Street, Lincoln Nebraska.  (402) 904-4800.


The special UNL/SOB hotel rate is $125 per night (plus tax) and includes breakfast.  Please make your hotel reservation by September 2nd.  (Make sure that you mention that this is for the SOB conference in order to get the special rate.  The contact person at the hotel is Melanie Maynard.)  Meeting attendees will need to cover their hotel, travel and Saturday night dinner expenses.

The hotel offers a free shuttle to and from the Lincoln airport (LNK) (you’ll need to call to reserve the shuttle).   LNK is about 10 minutes away from downtown Lincoln. http://www.lincolnairport.com

The Lincoln airport connects on Delta to Atlanta and Minneapolis and on United to Chicago and Denver.

There is also another larger airport in Omaha (OMA), 50 miles away, that may offer more international flight connections.  http://www.flyoma.com.

Please see the University of Nebraska website for more information about the university, travel options, and the area:  http://www.unl.edu/lincoln/about-lincoln

As always, our meeting begins with a Friday night reception and runs until noon on Sunday.  The UNL College of Business Administration generously agreed to host the Friday night reception, as well as lunch and coffee breaks on Saturday and Sunday.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Larry (who will be moving to UNL this fall!)  larry.williams@und.edu or to the SOB planning committee.
