Registration is $10. Youth under 18 are free. You can pay in advance or just tell us you will attend if you prefer to pay at the door or are under 18.

Will it be streamed?

Last year we recorded the conference and streamed audio from it. This year we are working on streaming audio and video, so if you cannot make it in person, you can still check it out. We would appreciate any donation you can give to the streaming fund.
