Overnight?Accommodations

Are we responsible for our overnight accommodations?

Correct. With the change in location and offering additional meals our budget could not cover overnight accommodations. While we knew some advisors would not find this decision favorable, we have received a lot of feedback that preferred the conference to go in the direction of a larger scale conference, such as Focus. We hope that the content we have put together and the networking opportunity will be worth the investment of your time and money. There are also additional options located in Cle Elum, WA, just 10-15 minutes away. A few of those options can be found in the question below.
