Notes from 2011-2013 Forums Click Here



Attendees who register at least 1 day prior to each forum and provide an e-mail address will have a parking pass issued to them via e-mail which will permit parking in the parking deck. If you do not receive the parking pass via e-mail, allow yourself time to pick one up from the reception desk in the front lobby. You may continue to park without a permit in the Fairgrounds parking lot at the corner of Blue Ridge and Trinity, or at Carter-Finley Stadium. There is a bus that runs from Carter-Finley to the CVM every 15 minutes. The CVM parking deck requires a permit. Also, cars parked in the hospital client lots will be ticketed. Directions and a map can be found here.
