Directions and nearby attractions


Transportation from Airport

Options for transportation from the airport:

  • K-Shuttle provides a shuttle, with regular price $20 one-way and $30 round-trip. Meeting attendees will receive an IRP group discount by booking online.
  • Taxi: $28-32 each way

IRP-Funded Attendees: As the taxi is around twice the cost of the shuttle, reimbursement will only be made for shared taxi rides with an IRP-funded colleague. Otherwise, reimbursement will be for just the cost of the shuttle.


Meeting Registration

On Monday, May 18th, meeting registration will be open 2:30 – 6:30 pm on the first floor in the Oglethorpe Foyer. Registration hours on Tuesday, May 19 and Wednesday, May 20 will be 7 am – 5 pm.

Attendees will receive name badges and conference materials at registration. Please remember that the name badge serves as the ticket to all conference programs and meals. Please wear it at all times and bring it to the opening reception and to breakfasts.


Dietary Restrictions and ADA Accommodations

Accommodations: Please contact IRP ASAP if there are additional accommodations we may provide so you can fully participate in the meeting.
Dietary restrictions: If you have any food allergies or other restrictions (i.e. vegetarian or kosher), please notify IRP ASAP.


Networking Activities

Plan to take advantage of opportunities to get to know your IRP colleagues outside of the meeting agenda! Volunteer "Meeting Ambassadors” are organizing a variety of optional activities this year. See the list, which will also be distributed onsite.


Meeting Materials

The revised agenda, agendas for committee meetings, IRP Checkpoint, and other meeting materials are available online on the 2015 Annual Meeting Handouts page.  If you would like to refer to these onsite, please review and download ahead of time; copies will be provided of the agenda, but not the other materials.
