I already paid for AM, when will I receive my refund?

I already booked housing, do I need to call and cancel?
If you reserved a room in the OTA room block through the OTA approved housing bureau, Conference Direct, your reservation has been automatically canceled and a cancelation notification sent to the email on file. Those who booked a room outside the OTA room block are responsible for canceling their reservations. Contact spellman@ota.org with any questions relating to housing.
