WESTERN POLITICAL SCIENCE ASSOCIATION
2014 ANNUAL MEETING

THE POWER OF INFORMATION

April 17 – April 19, 2014 – Sheraton Seattle Hotel
Seattle, Washington

If you are flying to Seattle, the fastest (30 minutes) and most economical way ($2.75 one way to Westlake, last stop) to get to the hotel is by taking Link Light Rail. The Westlake stop is one block away from the hotel. Go up the escalator to Fifth Avenue and Pine and the hotel is one block away on Sixth Avenue and Pike.

Future of NSF Political Science Funding Before Congress This Week

The U.S. House of Representatives voted on Wednesday (Jan. 15) to approve the 2014 omnibus appropriations bill (H.R. 3547), which does not include restrictions on NSF funding. The U.S. Senate is anticipated to vote on the bill before the week is out. While the passage of the bill is a positive sign, the potential still exists that restrictions on NSF funding may be added. WPSA members are encouraged to contact their Senators and urge them to support the omnibus bill. Members can also sign a petition in support of the bill at: http://www.petition2congress.com/13726/support-social-science-funding-natl-science-foundation-in-2014/

REDUCED RATES ON ALASKA AIRLINES

The WPSA has signed an agreement again this year with Alaska Airlines to provide members with reduced rates for our annual meeting. If you book your flight with Alaska Airlines or Horizon Air, you will receive a 7% discount off the lowest published fare (the deal excludes companion and other promotional fares). In addition, the program provides financial benefits for the association, so we encourage members to fly Alaska. The discount applies for travel from April 14 to 22, 2014. Unfortunately, the discount does not apply for the holiday weekend dates of April 18 to 20. However, the association still receives credit if you fly on those days, so please still use the discount code.

To receive the discount, book your tickets online at http://www.alaskaair.com/ and input the Discount Code when searching for flights. You can also book your flight through the Alaska Airlines Group desk at 1-800-445-4435, though a $15.00 per person ticketing fee will apply for phone reservations. The discount code is: ECMU961.

In addition, if you purchase an Alaska Airline ticket to attend the conference but do not use the code, please send a note to Richard Clucas (hprc@pdx.edu) letting him know. Include the names of the travelers and their ticket numbers in your note. The association can still receive credit for your travel.

As with any deal, there is some small print. If you change or cancel your flight after ticketing, a service charge will likely apply. The discount is available from any U.S. or Canadian city served by Alaska Airlines or Horizon Air, excluding Hawaii and Prudhoe Bay, Alaska.
