Workshop Logistics: The Skilled Facilitator® Intensive Workshop June 2018

June 18th – 22nd, 2018 Chapel Hill, NC

Return to The Skilled Facilitator Intensive Workshop


Please fly to RDU (Raleigh Durham International Airport). We suggest you arrive Sunday evening, June 17th, as the workshop starts promptly at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, June 18th.

The workshop ends at 4:30 p.m. on Friday, June 22nd. We recommend you select a return flight that departs at 7:00 p.m. or later to allow for rush hour traffic and airport security. You will need 40 to 60 minutes to travel from the workshop venue to the airport, and additional time to return your rental car if you have one, get your bags checked, go through security and get to your gate. Accommodations can be made if you need to depart before the end of the workshop.

Ground Transportation:
You may hire a shuttle or taxi to pick you up and return you to the airport. It is not necessary to rent a car if you stay at the hotel recommended below; any other lodging will necessitate a rental car or other daily ground transportation.


The Courtyard by Marriott is located across the street from the Friday Center (the workshop venue). We have arranged for a block of rooms at a discounted rate of $118 per night. The room block is available until May 18th.
