Need A Ride to the Conference?

ABANA has set up a ride sharing program to help you to make a connection with others going to the Conference. To make this work we need anyone driving to the Conference to consider offering a ride to those that need one. Particularly we need those that will be driving past the BWI or Philadelphia Airport to consider offering a ride to those attendees flying in

We are using eRideShare.com and have set up a seperate group for the Conference:
ABANA 2014 Conference Harrington, Delaware

You will need to create your own password protected account and then you can post a ride request or offer, or respond to a ride request.
