Deadline approaching to reserve discounted RNA Annual Conference rooms

Gaylord Opryland Resort

Sunday, August 13 is the final day to reserve deeply discounted Gaylord Opryland Resort rooms for the 2017 RNA Annual Conference in Nashville

COLUMBIA, MO, USA, August 9, 2017 / -- This Sunday, August 13, is the deadline to reserve discounted rooms at the Gaylord Opryland Resort for the 2017 Religion News Association Annual Conference to be held in Nashville Sept. 7–9.

RNA has reserved a block of rooms at the iconic, sprawling resort at heavily reduced rates. The rate INCLUDES a daily resort fee that covers: high-speed, in-room wireless internet; shuttle service to the Grand Ole Opryhouse and other nearby attractions; Gaylord Springs Golf Links practice range access (includes a bucket of practice balls); Wildhorse Saloon cover charge; access to the resort's three pools, fitness center and more! The rate will be honored Sept. 5 – Sept. 11, 2017, so plan to come a day early and stay a day late to take full advantage of the resort's amenities.

- Covering Religious Hate in Trump's America
