In order to put on this conference for such a reasonable rate, we need the help of many volunteers. Below is a list of current openings. If you are interested in volunteering or you are bringing a spouse or friend along for the ride who may be able to volunteer, this is a great way to help. All volunteers get raffle tickets for our volunteer raffle. In 2011 this exclusive raffle had many great items. If you can help, please contact Volunteer Chair Christine Bard at bardc@comcast.netwith either the day or time or if for an intro or door monitor task the session number. Please also include the name of any participating societies you are a member of and would like to give your hours to.

  1. Where can I find information on your cancellation and refund policies?

    1. This is taken from the Registration page of the 2013 program:
      “Early Bird” registration ($110) ends 28 February 2013. Any registrations postmarked
      after that date are $135; those registrants may encounter difficulty in registering for meals
      and workshops. Cancellations postmarked before Friday, 31 March 2013 will be subject
      to a $15.00 processing fee. No refunds are available after 31 March 2013. However, those
      registering through our online registration service, RegOnline, will have an option to
      purchase cancellation insurance. Sorry, this option is not available for mail registrations
      paying by check. Your payment must be paid online with a credit card to take advantage of
      the cancellation protection. Details are available at the RegOnline site. Please read the fine print before selecting this option. Although we will make every effort to accommodate those registering after 31 March 2013, meal choices and availability are not guaranteed.
