  • For those participating in the pre-conference training and conference (9/9-9/11) check-in is on 8 Sep, you should use this link.
  • For those participating in the conference only (9/10-9/11 check-in is on 9 Sep, you should use this link.
  • For those preferring to call in for their reservation ask for the Division of Homeland Security block @ 701-751-2373.
  • For those preferring to stay elsewhere, DO NOT use a third-party booking site like hotels.com and others. You pay the third-party company for your room, not the hotel. This means you will not get the required invoice which shows a zero balance and therefore won’t be eligible for reimbursement.

NOTE: The incorrect room rate is currently displayed for both booking links. Individuals should go ahead and reserve their room as the rate will be adjusted to the state rate after booking.
