Pay more if you can, less if you can't! No one will be turned away due to inability to pay. It is important to us that this conference is accessible to everyone. Because of this, we ask that you think critically about what you're able to contribute; whether that's more than $70 or less. Choose the Pay-What-You-Can option. If you'd like to donate to BECAUSE to help absorb the cost of others who cannot pay the full fee, you are able to do so as well. Click HERE to Register
What Is Included With Registration? Your registration grants you full access to workshops, panels, keynote speakers, entertainment, the Resource Fair, and food.
Once registration closes, you can register onsite. However, our food numbers are based off of pre-registration so please register now.
Friday Day-Long Institutes Friday during the day we will have expanded workshops that are longer than our normal 75 minute workshops. This will allow us to dig into topics more and build deeper connections with others in the rooms. This is an extra cost and has a separate fee of $50-85 and Pay-What-You-Can options. There are also options to come only to Friday Institutes. There are CEU options offered. For more information, check out our programming on our site as it goes up.
Again, no one will be turned away. Pay more if you can, less if you can't.
