But, please register for an All-Inclusive room package if at all possible!
This venue was incredibly generous and gracious. They are a non-profit and totally accommodating. The symposium prices are as low as they are because they gave us the presentation rooms for FREE. They thought what we were doing was wonderful and so helped us out. We were able to take a huge amount off the attendance cost because of this. We are about dead even on the cost and expenses, if we meet our quota. Unfortunately we had to make a few sacrifices (shared bathrooms, a little extra walking and one meal option, which has at least 4 options within it).
We really really really have to have at least 25 more people sign up to make our room quota or CCWR will have to pay for the empty rooms. This was part of the contract. This is after we drastically underestimated the number of rooms we needed at the symposium last year. Many of you are already talking about next year. If we don’t get enough people to sign up this year, there may not be a symposium next year. We won’t be able to afford it. We keep the prices for registration and membership as low as humanly possible, but this does not give us much flexibility.
If you register for an all-inclusive package, be sure to log in to your CCWR account to receive a $25 discount.
