Conference registration costs $150 (before 6/1), $175 (before 9/1) and $200 up until the conference date or we reach capacity. Once you register, you’ll be sent a coupon code for $10 off a guest registration. Because it is in our hometown, we do expect to sell-out, so we encourage you to register early.
