Greetings ISHPSSB Member:
I hope you are anticipating a valuable and fun meeting at Quinnipiac
University next week. As the time for the meeting approaches, I'd like
to update you on some details of the meeting, and ask that you submit
travel information forms (if you are not renting a car) and a housing
reservation form. Please note that if you have received an email
confirmation from me regarding housing or travel, you need not submit
the information again.
Realize that CT Limo does not travel directly to Quinnipiac--for this
reason we are collecting travel information to try to help you get to
Quinnipiac as conveniently as possible. We need housing information in
advance so that we can be sure the proper number of rental linens and
rooms are available.
If you have not yet sent in travel information and you are not renting a
vehicle or driving yourself, please do send in your travel information
now! The form is available at:
or you can send me your arrival and departure location, day and time of
arrival, and anticipated means of transportation to Quinnipiac.
The Local Arrangements Committee needs this information for several
--the limo does not take passengers directly to Quinnipiac. We have
arranged for a shuttle to run between the North Haven Holiday Inn (note,
this is NOT New Haven) and Quinnipiac on Wednesday from 2 p.m. to 10
p.m, and may arrange other times based on travel information provided to
us. If you are arriving at other times, we would like to know so we can
try to help with your transportation. Otherwise you will have to take a
cab from the Holiday Inn in North Haven to Quinnipiac University. A cab
from the Holiday Inn in North Haven to Quinnipiac should cost about $12.
If you prefer, you may take CT Limo to one of the New Haven hotels and
take a cab from there to Quinnipiac University. Cabs may be more
readily available in New Haven. Metro Taxi, 777-7777, serves Quinnipiac
University. A cab from New Haven Tweed or the New Haven Train station
will run approximately $25 to $30.
--we also need to inform the limo company of likely passenger loads and,
if appropriate, arrange for additional vehicles.
--we would like to help you arrange for direct transportation back to
airports on Sunday, but we cannot do that without additional
So please send in your travel information!

Peabody Museum of Natural History Reception
We are very excited about the Friday night reception at the Peabody
Museum of Natural History in New Haven--thanks to the Program in the
History of Science and Medicine at Yale University for hosting!
Participants may take a bus to the reception; we also encourage those
who have rented cars to carpool down to the Peabody--about a 15 minute
drive from Quinnipiac.
We suggest that participants stay in New Haven for dinner. Bus returns
are scheduled for 8 p.m., 9 p.m., 10 p.m., and 11 p.m. for just this
purpose. As you consider your plans for the conference, think ahead
about the bus return time you are likely to choose. We will distribute
tickets for the various return times so that we can manage loads.
New Haven has a number of excellent restaurants; it is a lovely place to
spend the evening!
Because of the Peabody reception we have cancelled Friday dinner on
campus and reduced the cost of the full meal plan accordingly. However,
for those who prefer to eat on campus Friday evening, we will do our
best to help you find appropriate delivery food or arrange for another
meal option on campus.
Looking forward to seeing you next week!
Kathy and Dave
