Hotel and Travel The New Jersey School Boards Association, in collaboration with AC Central, contracts with a number of Atlantic City hotels to offer discounted pricing on hotel rooms for Workshop. All housing reservations are being handled by AC Central. Lodging Reservations can be made online, but only by the school business administrator. The last day to pay for/make hotel reservations is Sept. 20, 2019.

SCAM ALERT: BEWARE OF FALSE ROOM OFFERS Each year, several exhibitors and attendees fall prey to accommodation offers from fraudulent companies—most notably a scammer known as Exhibitors Housing Services (EHS). These hotel providers present themselves as our official hotel booking partner. Note that these groups are in no way affiliated with NJSBA and their claims of having access to rooms are false.

NJSBA will never call school officials or exhibitors regarding hotel reservations. NJSBA cannot guarantee any hotel rooms which are not booked through AC Central.
