Santa Fe, NM

The Dancing Ground of the Sun

Santa Fe, known as “The Dancing Ground of the Sun,” is famous for its vibrant history and strong cultural heritage. Full of Pueblo-style architecture, artistic events, and exciting opportunities for adventure, Santa Fe has its own unique style. 

With legendary history and culture around every corner, an art scene that spans from traditional to contemporary, accommodations with a local feel yet world-class status, award-winning cuisine that’s as eclectic as it is sumptuous, and countless experiences to encounter, you’re sure to uncover something different about yourself when you visit.  Learn all there is to see and do at santafe.org

AHIA Members can register today for $625.  Registration includes in-person and virtual access to ALL educational sessions, the Wednesday evening reception, all meals and activities on Thursday, and breakfast Friday morning.

Getting to Santa Fe is easier than ever!

With nonstop flights from Phoenix, Denver, and Dallas Forth Worth, you are sure to find an easy flight from where ever you are!  flysantafe.com

Plan to stay through the weekend...

After the AHIA meeting concludes Friday at noon, Eric Laurence, our local AHIA member, will be leading a tour of the La Cieneguilla Petroglyph Site and then hosting a small cocktail hour at his home in Albuquerque.  Lunch and transportation will be on your own but this is a sight not to be missed while you are in town!


Covid-19 Information

As mandated by the state of New Mexico, masks will be required at all in-person events.  Additionally, AHIA will require proof of vaccination before entering the conference venues.  

Be sure to bring your proof of vaccination card, or a digital copy of it, and a photo ID to gain entry.  Because of the intimate setting of the AHIA meetings, proof of vaccination will only need to be provided at initial check-in.

All attendees, as well as any visitors to meeting rooms and social events, are required to provide proof of vaccination to enter the AHIA venues. Additionally, restaurants, attractions and other tourism-related businesses may have implemented additional safety guidelines for guests, including requiring proof of vaccination.

Reasonable Accommodations:  In the event vaccination and/or masking is not possible for an individual, all education sessions will be live-streamed and made available on-demand for a period of 7 days after the close of the meeting to attendees.  Unvaccinated individuals will not be permitted to attend in-person events.

Reservations at the Inn & Spa at Loretto

211 OLD SANTA FE TRAIL, SANTA FE, NM 87501

Founded in 1975 by the Kirkpatrick family, the Inn and Spa at Loretto sits on the former site of the historic Our Lady of Loretto Academy and is adjacent to the famed Loretto Chapel featuring the miraculous staircase. Now one of the most photographed buildings in the state, the Inn is a Santa Fe icon and testament to the city's modern history.  From its beginnings as a unique adobe-style Best Western to the property it is today, the Inn remains true to its roots - imparting casual sophistication with sincere Southwest hospitality and authentic Santa Fe style. 

We are making reservations via a rooming list again for the Spring 2022 meeting.  The King and Double room rates are $179 single/double and will be honored, based on availability, 3 days before and after our event.  To make your reservation, please include your arrival and departure dates and your desired room type when completing your meeting registration.  That’s all you need to do!  You will receive your confirmation number by 1 April.  You will need to present your credit card at registration at the hotel.

Walking Tour of the Historic Santa Fe Plaza

File:Loretto Chapel.jpg

Walk through more than 400 years of history, art, and culture.  Your guide will present an extraordinary introduction to Santa Fe and an enter­taining and accurate portrayal of the "City Different."  Visit the historic Plaza and the Palace of the Governors (whose occupants have included government and military leaders from Spain, Mexico, the Confeder­acy, the U.S. and Indian nations).  Learn about St. Francis Cathedral, and explore the Loretto Chapel and its miracu­lous staircase; the oldest church; and the capitol, and other major Santa Fe historical sites. 

Included in the cost of your registration. 

Wednesday Evening Dine-Around

All four of our amazing restaurant choices are within walking distance from the hotel.

Anasazi Restaurant

Inspired by Santa Fe’s rich cultural and culinary history, our Executive Chef's menus fuse old world techniques with modern, innovative recipes and artful plating. The dishes fully embrace the Inn’s Southwestern and native heritage and are consistently changing and adapting to reflect the freshest, most seasonal local ingredients.

Radish & Rye

Here at Radish & Rye, our mission is to share our love for food and drink through our Farm Inspired Cuisine. What is Farm Inspired Cuisine? It's our way to describe simple yet innovative food and drinks sourced locally whenever possible. Because we are passionate about fresh food and proud to support local farmers and ranchers, our menu changes with the seasons. In addition to shopping at the Farmer's Market every Tuesday and Saturday, we work closely with local farmers and ranchers to build our menu from the freshest meat, dairy and produce available. Radish & Rye is more than a restaurant or even a business. It's an expression of our values, creativity, and love of this community. We hope our passion shows in our service as well as our cuisine. Whether you choose to dine in our intimate and well-appointed dining room or to eat in our lively and inviting bar, you'll be taken care of by some of Santa Fe's finest professionals.

Market Steer Steakhouse

Where refined dining meets fun!  Market Steer Steakhouse offers a refreshing new take on fine dining, serving up an atmosphere every bit as charming as Chef Kathleen Crook's creative approach to classic American food. 

Cafe Pasqual's

For forty years Cafe Pasqual's has been serving emphatically flavored cuisine inspired by the culinary traditions of New Mexico, Old Mexico, the Mediterranean, and Asia.  We are dedicated to using fresh, seasonal, organic and naturally raised foods.

Thursday Evening Activity

Chimayo Tour with Dinner at Rancho de Chimayo

El Santuario de Chimayo: Holy Dirt Found in New Mexico | We Who Roam

Enjoy a drive through the beautiful sandstone formations into the lush Chimayo Valley.  The tour will take us north of Santa Fe along the “High Road”, passing through several small 18th and 19th-century Hispanic farming communities before finally arriving at the village of Chimayo, located in a beautiful valley in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. 

You will have a stop at the charming Santuario de Chimayo, the most important Catholic pilgrimage site in the Southwest. The Santuario is famous for the professed healing powers contained in the earth near the church and which can be gathered from a small hole in the floor of an anteroom within the Santuario.   Your guide will lead you through the church and adjacent hamlet where you will have the opportunity to shop for souvenirs and some of the famous chile of the area, perhaps the most flavorful of any chile grown in the US.  

Rancho de Chimayo Restaurant is one of the most visited dining establishments in the world and is continually listed as a top 100 restaurant establishment in the United States.  This century-old adobe home with white-washed walls, hand stripped vigas, cozy dining rooms and lush terraced patios has become one of New Mexico's more popular places to dine.  Rancho de Chimayo is known for its unique native New Mexico cuisine, prepared with locally grown products from recipes that have been in the family for generations.   

Transportation and Dinner are included in your registration. 
Guests are welcome, an additional fee will apply.
