Unity in the Midst of Disunity:
The Role of Political Science in Democracy

The 2023 meeting of the Western Political Science Association will be held at the beautiful Hyatt Regency near the Ferry Building in San Francisco, California, from April 6 to 8. Some of our most successful meetings have been in San Francisco. We expect the 2023 conference to be another great success.

You need to book your hotel room with us now to get the group rate. Our biggest concern right now is to make sure that participants are making reservations at the conference hotel. We only reserve a finite number of guest rooms. If you do not make your reservation well in advance, you may not be able to get our discounted rate. So, please stay at the hotel and make your reservations soon. The deadline for reservations is approaching rapidly. The rate is $235 a night. Book your room here: https://www.hyatt.com/en-US/group-booking/SFORS/G-WP23/ATTENDEE. Reservations can be cancelled without penalty by 3pm PST 72 hours prior to arrival.

The total costs for staying in the hotel has dropped. The Hyatt tacked on a daily $35 destination fee on all reservations. The hotel has agreed to drop the fee in order to encourage more members to stay at the Hyatt. If you have already booked your rooms, the fee will be automatically removed when you pay your final bill. The hotel has also increased the number of rooms with two beds in our allotment in order to meet increased demand for those rooms.

If you have any problems in making your reservations, whether it is in finding the right type of room or in getting the destination fee waived, contact Richard Clucas at hprc@pdx.edu.
