Scam Alert

It has come to our attention that a housing company named “National Travel Partners” (347-396-0790) is offering hotel reservation services for the 2016 NABJ and NAHJ Annual Convention and Career Fair.

This company and others like it are NOT in any way affiliated with NABJ/NAHJ and should NOT be used to make hotel reservations.

The Washington Marriott Wardman Park does not and will not make phone calls to NABJ/NAHJ members, exhibitors or annual meeting attendees, encouraging you to book with them. If you have received any communication either via email or telephone, it is a scam.
