Planners Hotel & Travel


Once you are individually registered for Emerge 2017, you will receive an email confirmation with the link to make hotel reservations in our RCMA room block.  Deadline for hotel reservations is January 20th.

Religious Meeting Planner Rate:  $99 + tax, single/double in the Hilton Chicago Downtown (headquarter hotel) or Hyatt Regency McCormick Place

Once you are registered for Emerge 2017, you will receive a confirmation email with the link to make hotel reservations in our block. Should an outside organization contact you to assist with this process, please do not book any hotel rooms with them.  RCMA has not contracted with any outside group to assist in this process.  The "Convention Housing Authority/Expo Services" is a well-know scam and has had many complaints filed against them.  They have attempted to poach the room block for which RCMA has contracted in the past.

If you have any questions, please contact the RCMA office at 317-632-1888.

Hosted Planners

Please click here for the airline reimbursement schedule.

For Hosted Planners choosing to travel by car, RCMA will reimburse mileage at $.54/mile, up to a maximum of $150. If a vehicle is rented, the agreement must be entered into by the Hosted Planner in their own name (and not in the name of RCMA), and will be the sole responsibility of the Hosted Planner. The Hosted Planner acknowledges that RCMA will have no liability or other responsibility in connection with any Hosted Planner Travel Allowance and agrees to indemnify RCMA against any judgments, fines, claims or other losses directly or indirectly arising out of or in connection with this. You will need to complete an RCMA Travel Reimbursement Form, which will be available onsite during the 2017 Emerge event. Hosted Planners who select to drive to Emerge will be responsible for their own vehicle insurance (for themselves and any additional passengers).
