129th Annual Meeting

Child Care for the 2015 Annual Meeting

AHA, October 2014

The AHA provides the names of the following child-care suppliers as a service to members who may be interested, but the AHA assumes no responsibility for their performance, licensing, insurance, and so on. Companies note that they are fully insured, licensed, and bonded, and they will make arrangements to provide child care in the client’s hotel room or elsewhere. Pay rates are generally based on a caregiver’s training and experience and the requirements of the particular engagement. Typical rates are $25–30 per hour. If plans must be made closer to the meeting dates, attendees can also call their selected hotel’s concierge desk for a list of child-care providers maintained by the hotel.
