2019 Conference Program (Updated 4-11-19)

We will be pre-registering again this year for the State Conference.  For those that attended our Conferences the last few years and pre-registered you know how simple and time saving this process  is. Specific Conference registration information will be sent to each member the first week of February.

If you would like, feel free to print the pre-registration form out and mail it in.  A deadline of May 1st, 2020 has been set for pre-registration mailings to be returned.  Please do not be one of those individuals who wastes time standing in line!  Of course as in the past, registration will be available at the conference desk for those who do not pre-register. ($10 late fee when registering May 6-8)
