Description

NESAWG's 2018 It Takes A Region Conference

NESAWG's annual It Takes a Region Conference brings together farm and food practitioners across the 12-state Northeast region to learn, debate, collaborate, and innovate ideas and solutions to critical food systems issues. Our 2018 conference will be held October 24-27 at the Philadelphia 201 Hotel (formerly Sheraton Downtown Hotel) in Philadelphia, PA.

Pricing

This year, NESAWG is instituting an optional tiered pricing structure. We are doing this so we can continue to offer lower cost tickets to those who need it, while raising funds to support lower cost tickets and our scholarship fund. We offer suggestions for each ticket price, but leave it to you to purchase the ticket that works best for your individual or organizational budget. To learn more about the new pricing structure, visit the registration info page on our website.

For more information about the conference, visit the Conference page on our website.

Conference Lodging

Hotel reservations must be booked separately. You can book your room online or call (215) 448-2000. You must identify yourself as a member of NESAWG to receive the conference rate when speaking with a representative or booking online. The deadline for receiving the discounted conference rate is October 4, 2018.

Scholarships

NESAWG offers scholarships to help make our conference accessible to youth, students, farmers, and low-income people. (Youth is defined as under 25 years of age.) Full scholarships cover the total registration costs of the main conference (Friday and Saturday), while partial scholarships cover 50% of the fee. Scholarship applications close September 18, 2018. For more information vist the Scholarships at the Conference page.

Youth Registration Policy

Youth are welcome at the conference and we encourage organizations working with youth to consider bringing them to participate. This year, we will have programming at the conference developed by youth for youth. We also prioritize youth applicants in our scholarship process.

All youth under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult and must submit a permission slip signed by their parent or guardian to NESAWG. Organizations bringing youth to the conference must also sign and submit a release form to NESAWG. Permission slips and organizational release forms will be sent via email for electronic signatures to attendees and organizations who require it, based on information given in the registration form.

Refund Policy

If you are unable to attend the conference after you register, NESAWG will reimburse your full registration cost minus a $25 processing fee until October 1, 2017. If you request a refund between October 2 - October 17 you will receive a 50% reimbursement. No refunds will be issued after October 17, 2017. Please email refund requests to conference@nesawg.org
