The reservations need to be made a day in advance.

For those of you driving to the Little Rock, AR, convention, here is how parking will work. Parking is $12 per car, per exit, per day. AVSA convention attendees will be able to receive a $6 parking discount at the Convention District Parking Deck located at the corner of 2nd and Main Street. That reduces the $12 charge per car, per exit, per day to just $6 per car, per exit, per day. Each time you exit the parking structure will cost you just $6 instead of $12. A map of this area is on the AVSA Convention website.
Before you exit the parking deck, you will need to make sure your ticket is stamped by AVSA or that you have picked up a stamped business card for discounted parking that will be available at the Registration Table. This will alert the attendant that you are attending our AVSA Little Rock Convention and have discounted parking.
Note: If you arrive when Registration is not open, a sign at the Registration desk will direct you to someone who has the stamped business cards.
