Due to the logistical needs of this event and therefore, our financial obligations, last-minute changes will increase our costs. To help us keep costs down:

*Online registration will close at 12:00 noon on Tuesday, March 13th.
*All registrations must be done online; we do not take registrations off the phone or at the door.

(The Hilton Hotel requires us to confirm and pay for meals on Wednesday, February 28th -- that's why we cannot refund monies after 3:00 pm, Tue, Feb 27th.)

We appreciate your help in keeping costs down. Thank you!
