What do I need to know about this program?
This event has scheduled outdoor workshops. Please dress appropriately. In case of rain, we will be outdoors if raining lightly, indoors if raining heavily or if temperatures are prohibitive. If snow events are forecast, participants will be notified of program status via email. Contact Event Organizer by phone if email is not your primary or preferred form of communication.
What should I bring to the event?
Persons attending a Breakout session are encouraged to bring their lunch to enjoy at that time. Light refreshments will be available during Registration Check-In and the Break. If the weather is particularly nice, the gardens and the arboretum - always open to the public - make a wonderful setting for a lovely lunch and/or walk on your own.
Can I update my registration information?
Yes. You may choose your attendance status (Attend Morning Sessions only; a Breakout Session only or Both) and the Breakout session you'd like to attend. You may update that any time up to the day before the event (Friday, February 24)
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
You do not have to print any ticket or information. Your information will be at Registration Check-In
