Where

The Historic Peabody Hotel
Memphis, TN

MemphisHome of the Blues and home to the music of legends from B.B. King and Roy Orbison to Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis Presley. While the main event is certainly the OAA State Leadership Conference, there will be plenty of time to walk the famed Beale Street, enjoy the best in southern cuisine (though we'll feed you plenty!) and, of course — enjoy some blues!

The Peabody — "The South's Grand Hotel." Since hosting its first meeting in 1869, The Peabody has remained the city's unsurpassed business and social hub, an establishment synonymous with gracious Southern hospitality and grand Delta style. While the historic architecture and interiors remain, today's Peabody boasts a contemporary style perfect for its modern visitors.

The famous Memphis Music sign

Make your reservations at the Peabody no later than January 15, 2019, to enjoy a reduced group rate of $205/night. However, we encourage all conference attendees to book as soon as possible, since the annual OAA State Leadership Conference and event hotel are guaranteed to sell out quickly.

Reserve using the OAA dedicated event page on the Peabody Website
or by calling the toll-free reservation line: 1-800-PEABODY (1-800-732-2639)
