Hotel Information – We have reserved a block of rooms at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill. Space is limited, so please reserve your room as soon as possible in order to guarantee our special rate.

Registration – All attendees must register in order to attend the Homecoming events.  One of the benefits of membership in the Alumni Association is a reduced registration fee and cost to attend the Saturday gala. Another benefit is that these prices are available to your guests as well. To become a member of the Alumni Association, you should first join on-line (i.e. prior to registering for Homecoming). You can secure your membership by clicking HERE.  If you are a paid member of the Association, you qualify for the discounted $50 registration price and the discounted $125 Gala price.

Early Bird Pricing – Early bird pricing is guaranteed through May 1, 2020. However, many of our tours have capacity limits and will be filled on a first come first served basis, so don’t delay and reserve your spot today! After May 1, 2020, the registration fee for all Alumni will be $100 per person and the Gala will be $150 per person, regardless of USCPAA membership status. 

Volunteers – We will need volunteers during Homecoming! If you would like to volunteer at the reunion, please email us at Alumni@CapitolPageAlumni.org.  

House Page Program Information Project – We are asking all former Pages to help us to educate the current members of Congress about the House Page Program.  We request that you hand-deliver (to your current House Member’s congressional office in DC during our Homecoming 2020 weekend) a packet of information about the program, including a copy of our documentary Democracy’s Messengers.  Please sign up on the registration form and let us know if you will participate, the name of your current MOC, and if you would be willing to deliver these packets to any other MOC.  Those who participate will receive a free Homecoming T-shirt upon registration at no charge.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) –  We assume that our membership might have concerns about the Coronavirus and its potential to impact our Alumni Homecoming 2020 gathering. As of March 9, 2020, we are operating under the assumption that the U. S. Capitol, the U. S. Supreme Court, and other DC-area venues and restaurants will be open for visits, tours, programs, class dinners, and more, throughout Memorial Day weekend. For now, the Alumni Association intends to convene Homecoming 2020 activities and programs, as planned. We respect the individual choices that each of our Alumni are making in deciding whether or not to attend. We will allow cancellations, and grant full refunds, for event registration and/or Homecoming Gala Dinner tickets if such cancellations are made on or before May 10, 2020. Hotel reservation cancellations and refunds will depend upon the terms of your individual reservation(s) and legal contract(s) with your respective hotels. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide relevant updates of any change in policy both on our website and via email. Thank you.
