All talks take place on Saturday at the Campbell Community Center. Please sign up for the talks you want to attend as part of your registration, so we can determine the correct room size for each talk.
You must register for the conference itself (admission and lunch) in order for your place to be held for speakers and for tours.
If you prefer to sign up for speakers or tours at another time, rather than at the same time as registering, you must do so by creating a new order. Unless a tour involves a fee, you will not go through PayPal on an order placed for speakers or tours. You will simply “Checkout” from the page that shows your “Cart”. After being placed, you will receive an email showing your additional order.
Orders once placed cannot be re-opened and changed. If you wish to make a change to an order already placed, you must “contact us” so the webmaster can make a change.
