Due to a conflict with the hotel for our original July date, the date of MEEHU 3 has been changed to June 24 – June 26, 2016. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause any of our potential attendees. However, the date change comes with reduced hotel rates ($92 vs. $95) and a bit more room space if many of you need rooms.
We will see you in late June!
MEEHU 3 is up and running.
MEEHU 3 will be June 24 – 26, 2016 at the Northbrook Hilton in Northbrook, IL.
You can purchase your registration at Brown Paper Tickets. Tickets are the same price as last year: $50 until May 15, 2016, $70 from May 15 – June 22, 2016 and $100 at the door. We also have a “Full Price” option (because Brown Paper Tickets would not let us call it a ‘donation’) if you would like to contribute to the Scholarship fund.
Hotel rooms can be booked. Rooms are $92/night + tax. We will be in the West Tower this year, closer to our meeting rooms. There will be no Lacrosse teams there this year, so no Lacrosse moms. We will also have a restricted access floor as a party floor. Rooms on that floor will be $125/night + tax and will be juried out based on requests.
As always, we are looking for presenters, especially people who have not presented before, and lots of class ideas. We will have the MEEHU 3 programming page up soon. In the meanwhile, think about what you would like to present.
We have a limited number of scholarships and volunteer positions available again this year. We will have those pages up soon as well.
SEE YOU AT MEEHU 3!

Here is a Google document with a list of transportation alternatives of various kinds. We hope you find it helpful.
There is no direct public transport from the hotel to the two main airports, sorry. If you can rent a car or afford an taxi, please share if at all possible. There is a ridesharing thread on the MEEHU group on FetLife.
If you hire a taxi, be very careful. Taxi companies in Chicago tend to be rather cut-throat. It is not unheard of for taxi drivers to claim to be a company who’d been called for a reservation and then jack up the price because they were not in fact the taxi company that had been called. Don’t accept rides from people at the airport who claim to be taxi, limo, or shuttle drivers: pick up a taxi at the marked taxi stands.
Taxis should run you about 40 to 60 dollars from O’Hare to the hotel in Glendale Heights. Most legit taxi drivers will let you add a passenger for an extra $2.00, so you can split that up. Just ask them when you call so you can be sure.
American Taxi is by far the most inexpensive shuttle service out here.

Please note that the Con does not officially take over the third floor of the Hotel until 3 PM on Friday afternoon. Members of the general public MAY BE PRESENT until Friday afternoon. They may be late – you know how people are – so PLEASE act accordingly and be considerate of the fact that non-attendees may be on the con floor until late Friday afternoon.
Also, members of the general public may be in rooms directly below us during the entire Con. PLEASE keep room parties to a reasonable volume level.
Note that HypnosisEnthusiast will be giving his amazing stage hypnosis show on Friday night. While we encourage everyone who’s interested to attend, space will be limited as the Con is restricted to the third floor of the hotel so the room is only as big as it is.
The Unconference space will also be available for impromptu fun and of course MEEHU people are always capable of coming up with something interesting to do. Please plan accordingly!
