>Dear Chairs and Team contacts,
>The W3C TPAC 09 [1] is coming up soon:  2-6 November 2009 in Santa
>Clara, CA.  We are writing with some important information and
>reminders as well as a request that you fill out a WBS form with your
>AV and meeting set up needs.
>New registration fee:
>This year we have instituted a registration fee to help offset meeting
>costs.  Anyone attending meetings during the day, Monday through
>Friday, must register for the meeting and pay the registration fee
>(evening events are complimentary). The early bird registration fee
>is: $50 per person, per day.  We have extended the deadline for
>registration payment to Monday 5 October [2].
>Payment method:
>A PayPal page [3] has been organized to collect registration fees.
>Please note that you do not need a PayPal account to use the system.
>PayPal accepts major credit cards. If you have any problems using the
>system, please contact us at: <w3t-tpregister@w3.org>.
>Fee increases and deadlines:
>On 6 October the registration fee will increase to $75.  Registration
>will close entirely on Friday 23 October. This is a hard deadline.
>There will be no late registrations allowed after 23 October.
>Limited walk-in registration and further fee increases:
>After registration closes, the only option to attend meetings will be
>on a limited walk-in basis.  Walk-ins will be accommodated on a 
>space - available basis and will be charged $150 USD per person, per day. We
>strongly advise those who have not pre-registered for the meeting
>against making flight arrangements  as we must reserve the right to
>turn away walk-ins if we believe it will have a negative impact on
>meeting space or meals. More information on registration policies,
>refunds and walk-ins is available on the meeting overview page [4].
>Please make every effort to encourage your group to register [5] for
>the meeting by the 5 October deadline to avoid increased fees and
>absolutely by the 23 October registration deadline to make certain
>that they will be able to attend the meeting at all.
>Registration tracking:
>A list of the registrations by groups with attendee names and observer
>requests can be found at the Member-visible results page [6].  Please
>keep reviewing the list to see if those you expect to be there are
>registered and send reminders to those who might need them.
>Hotel deadlines:
>We have negotiated a hotel room rate of $174 USD + taxes with the
>Santa Clara Marriott [7].  The deadline for the reduced room rate is:
>12 October 2009, 17:00 pacific time. After 12 October the room rate
>will increase to the standard room rate (currently: $239).  W3C's
>block is filling up quickly and reservations are on a first-come,
>first-served basis.  We know that there are other outside groups
>meeting at the hotel at that time so please register at the hotel
>sooner rather than later and encourage your groups to do so as well.
>AV and room set up requests:
>Please fill out the WBS with your AV and room set-up requests [7] by
>Friday 9 October.
