FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19 –

If you are familiar with other recent conferences (and compare to Alcor’s 2006 and 2007 events), you’ll see that our registration rates are being kept low. We recognize that, especially in the current economy, high conference fees are an obstacle. These are the rates:

Early registration, until July 31:     $275 ($295 non-members)
August 1 to September 14:          $325 ($345 non-members)
From September 15:                    $365 ($385 non-members)
