For planning purposes, advance registration is greatly appreciated. Please let us know which functions you will be attending. Because we have to guarantee a certain number of attendees for the banquet and golf, there will be no refunds for cancellations made after March 1.

We are excited for this opportunity to host a joint meeting with these three great districts. I hope you will be able to make arrangements to attend. We are working on putting together some worthwhile technical sessions for your benefit.  Dress for the meetings is casual.

Please make your reservations today. Thank you and see you there!
