After February 15, registration costs go up to $255 per person; there are no group discounts for late registrations. Participants have the option to pay by purchase order, check, or pay online via PayPal using this registration form. Register for the conference now!


What a Great Deal! Registration fees for the full conference include: registration, all materials, a continental breakfast, lunch, and coffee available throughout the day for both days. Participants who have attended previous conferences say that they were well fed!

Please Note: Due to the increased costs incurred at our new location, the conference registration has increased slightly for 2013. We regret any hardship this causes you. We believe the cost remains very reasonable compared to market rates for similar training. Please call registration coordinator Kristin Freed at (218) 308-9007 if you have any questions about conference registration, or need to make changes to a previously submitted registration.
