The 2018 Schedule and Speakers are complete. Here is a downloadable file pdf and word doc. Conference Flyer.
Online Registration closed at 10pm, Thursday Feb. 22 so we can do final registration preparation. Sorry for the inconvenience, but you will be able to register/pay at the door. $35 per adult, $15 per youth.

If you have pre registered, look for an email with a link to the downloadable packet. We suggest you download it at home as the Internet service at the conference is sometimes hit and miss.
We will also have it on a thumb drive you can purchase, as supply permits, so if you have a laptop, consider bringing it.

Please note:
Last year we tried going GREEN with no printed handout and the feedback was good. So we will continue to save trees and money. Again, when the handout packets are ready and you have registered you will be given a link to the Google doc to access the handouts. You may then download the handouts and bring your own computer, tablet, etc to the conference or print the packet or just print the classes you will be attending. You will still have access to all the handouts for later viewing.

Because of the school’s construction you may not be able to access the internet while in the building so it will be best that you download the handout file before you come or pre-order a USB drive with the packet pre-loaded. Those who register at the door may be able to purchase the handouts pre-loaded on a USB drive for $10.00, limited supply.

Everyone will be given a room locator map and a schedule of classes at check-in.

Lunch plans for this year: See registration form for menu.
Cost is $12/person
Pre-order are now closed. NO sales at the door. register now

Attached is a document with a list of a few motels in the Clackamas area. The committee has compiled the list, given a brief summary and distance from the conference. We do not recommend one over the other and can not vouch for their service or the condition of their facility. We havent checked, so do your research to see if there are any newer places that have opened. Let us know and we can update our list!
