Registration Fee Information
The committee planning staff is wanting to make this conference as affordable as possible for our projects. At this time, we know that the fee will be less than last year. After having a conversation with our finance department, we have decided that we will adjust the price according to how many people register, which will be somewhere between $15 – $20. I will send an email about the final cost after the registration deadline.
