More of the details:
Registration Fee = $250
Student Fee = $200 (Must provide proof of enrollment for school (student ID)

You can make the lodging discount more significant by room-sharing.

Registration fees do NOT include: transportation; lodging; lunch on July 26 and 28, dinner; Fundraiser After Party (you will have the option of purchasing a ticket during registration); dinners, souvenirs, extra-curricular activities or personal expenses.

Please note: If financial trouble is the obstacle that stands in your way of attending this conference, please contact Susan Lopez at Susan@desireealliance.org. Desiree Alliance is more than happy to think “out-of-the-box” in terms of finding ways to help those who would be able to volunteer their time in exchange for partial deductions (i.e. registration fee or a possible room-share arrangement so that the cost would be $12.50 per night plus tax and fees).

Needless to say, if you want to support but don’t want to go (or can’t), then donations are always welcome. Donations will go to helping others get to the conference and paying for the conference facilities.

  1. Wish I could but it’s ridiculously expensive for me to do this, especially since I’m batting zero for clients. Ah well. Maybe next time the conference can be held in Podunk, USA.

  2. Aspasia,

    You won’t be there? 🙁 BIG frown!

    Airfare is the most expensive part of it, everything else can be done for less than $500 (if you’re very strict about the budget). But…if you don’t have the money, you don’t have it.

    I’m not entirely sure that a small town would be able to give a great hotel deal, have decent facilities, a way to make money while in town AND be open-minded to even hosting us. But I’m biased, I like Vegas.

    Seriously seriously going to miss you.

  3. Yeah, airfare is the problem. I was hoping to take advantage of my godfather (“uncle”) and the frequent flyer miles he has but I think he’s going to give them to his daughter for a trip she’s taking in August. **le sigh** Otherwise, I’d be there. After all, I’m a university student, I can exist on a food budget of $20 for a month!

    I’m going to miss seeing you too! I was so looking to seeing you. :`(

  4. Aspasia,

    No way to swing a bus ticket? I wish trains were a viable option in the US, we’ve got the countryside for it.

    Anyway…will miss you severely.

  7. Michael,

    There was a very good turnout, I met a couple of blog readers there (both great and memorable meetings!) and made a lot of new friends. As always, it’s an experience like nothing else — I think everyone says that after every conference.
