02.15.17:  Save the Date for TACC's Spring Meeting!

Our 2017 Spring Conference will be held at the French Lick Resort in French Lick, IN, on May 4-5. Nestled among the hills of the Hoosier National Forest, French Lick Resort is home to two AAA Four-Diamond nationally historic hotels, several restaurants, three challenging golf courses, two rejuvenating spas, impressive meeting venues and a Vegas-style casino (rated No. 4 Best Casino outside of Las Vegas by Yahoo Travel, 2016). Several of our members have spent time at the resort, and all of them have nothing but great things to say about it.

Members have the option to book rooms at the French Lick Springs Hotel ($159 per night) or the adjacent West Baden Springs Hotel ($189 per night). The West Baden Springs Hotel was once called the "Eighth Wonder of the World" because of its 200-foot free standing dome atrium. The French Lick Springs Hotel was originally established in 1845, and is home to the spa and casino. A complimentary shuttle constantly runs between the two hotels, and complimentary shuttles are available to the golf courses and stables. This promises to be a fun and memorable meeting. More details to follow. Mark your calendar now!

Call (888) 936-9360 for hotel reservations and use Code 0517-TAC or tell them you're with the Tennessee Association of Construction Counsel.
