The Seminar host hotel (already sold out) is the Holiday Inn Elk Grove Village (http://www.hielkgrove.com), with the Holiday Inn and Suites O’Hare/Rosemont a few miles away as overflow. There will be shuttles between the hotels and to/from ORD airport.
We will be seated tightly in the hotel ballroom, in a similar setup as previous years.
A NON-REFUNDABLE and NON-TRANSFERABLE registration fee of $85, to be paid by PayPal, includes:
1. Admittance to all events, which begins Friday evening and will run most of the day Saturday and Sunday, and conclude in time for you to catch the last bank of flights out of ORD.
2. Buffet lunch Saturday and Sunday.
3. Coffee / snack breaks.
4. A contribution toward travel costs for our presenters, whose airfare, hotel, registration, and incidental expenses will be covered. No one is receiving compensation for this event.
5. Fees for online registration and PayPal.
6. Other expenses such as name badges, office supplies, signage, possible extra shuttles, etc.
"Leftover" money, if any, will go toward door prizes and some money will be donated to charities, as we have done the past two years.
During the registration you will be asked which seminars you want to attend for each time slot, or to select "neither." Any that are full will be "greyed-out."
** For seminars that are full we are NOT taking wait-list requests. Please check back approximately 1 month prior to the scheduled start of the seminars to see if space has opened up. Space will be provided on a first come basis if available.
By registering you agree not to videotape or record the presentations in any way. Our speakers will be presenting some very interesting techniques which they do not want released publicly, especially to the Internet. Photographs may be taken, and social events and meals may be videotaped, but please don't record anyone who is unwilling.
Registrants will be required to sign a standard waiver as a part of registration absolving speakers, organizers, sponsors, and fellow participants of liability for any injury, physical, financial, or emotional.
