The #1 thing, please remember that a successful and fun Imperial Session for Your Temple begins with Your leadership in taking care of Your Temple’s housing needs.
Please familiarize yourself with the following important items:
“After a temple has voted to send units, clubs or Nobles to an annual Imperial Session of Shriners International or a Shrine association meeting, it shall designate one of the official divan as the authorized agent of the temple to make contracts for transportation and lodging, provided, however, that such contracts must be approved by, and contain any limits or conditions required by, the temple.”
These referenced sections of General Order #1 provide a detailed explanation of regulations related to the housing process for outside hotels. Please pay particular attention to the section on housing as it relates to making your housing arrangements through the Housing Chairman. Failure to comply with the regulations as outlined in General Order #1 will affect the participation of your Temple’s units in the competition(s) and parades(s).
If you are planning on staying in the Headquarters Hotels and you need 12 rooms or less, Shriners International will handle your hotel arrangements starting in mid-February of 2021.
As Assistant Rabbans, if you need MORE THAN 12 ROOMS, you will need to fill out the Housing Form and submit it to the 2021 Housing team using email account Housing21@imperialsession.com REGARDLESS of which hotel you wish to stay in! All Housing Arrangements MUST be made through the 2021 Housing Team or through Shriners International (if you need 12 rooms or less and you want to stay in a Headquarters Hotel).
If you have any questions regarding hotel specifics, please feel free to call Illustrious Sir Earl Robertson, 2021 Housing Chairman at (512) 922-0715, or email your questions to Housing21@imperialsession.com.
