Note: Our room blocks at the Sheraton and the Hyatt Place will open for reservations on Thursday, June 2, 2022 at noon CDT.

Below are some pix of both the Sheraton and the new Hyatt Place.

We want to assure you that the health and safety of our attendees, vendors, teachers, staff, and volunteers are our highest priority. We have created a COVID policy based on guidelines from the California Department of Public Health and will continue to monitor state and local guidelines. Read the full policy here

And of course, we’re looking forward to seeing so many of you that we haven’t seen in so long.

This is going to be great event. The only thing that could make it better is if YOU are there with us.


We hope to see you in November!

All my best.
