Book Within the AESC Room Block at the Omni Homestead Resort!

The AESC has reserved rooms at the Omni Homestead Resort for your benefit.  Reserve your accommodations early for the best chance of getting your first choice, as the number of rooms held is limited and, of course, the hotel certainly could sell-out all of their rooms at any time.  By making housing reservations within the AESC room block at the Homestead, you receive a substantial discount on the price of your accommodations

As is true for all groups who negotiate special discounted pricing for conference attendees, the American Eye Study Club has signed a contract with the Homestead Resort that "guarantees" a certain number of hotel rooms will be booked during the dates of our meeting. If we do not achieve a minimum number of overnight accommodations, the Club faces huge financial penalties for unused sleeping rooms.  This potentially can cost all members.  By staying at the Homestead instead of other off-property accommodations, you help the Club to meet its obligations and you experience the camaraderie that is a significant part of being a member of the American Eye Study Club!
