We are armed with your suggestions from this year's conference to make the next conference even better so we have begun the planning process.

You asked us to make the conference more affordable. The conference registration fee will be reduced. The Lions Gate Hotel price will be $118 plus tax for a double room with free parking, free breakfast, and free Wi-Fi. Dinner (Friday) and a lunch (Saturday) will be included with a Saturday night dinner option. Even the Crocker Museum is offering free admission. The 2020 Spring post-conference day will be included. The app will be back with tons of new facets to make your conference experience even better. Airfare to Sacramento can be CHEAP - watch for Southwest sales – usually $49-59 each way!!! The conference might be cheaper but the professional development experiences and network will be priceless.
