Each program is responsible for covering the costs of their attendees’ travel, hotel, and meals. We are making arrangements for the meals and will keep you posted on the exact food cost per attendee, but we anticipate the cost to be less than $100/attendee. We are arranging a block of hotels rooms at a reduced rate for the nights of the 12th and 13th.
