  • Giving less than 90 days notice before the annual conference doesn’t leave enough time to make arrangements. I’m already committed for those dates, though I’d love to come. Have the dates & location for the 2018 conference been set yet?

  • Bummer that the dates conflict with your schedule, Tim. We recommend getting in touch with the organizers at (or the phone number above) to inquire directly about dates for 2018. Typically, the event is held in mid/late March every year. Good luck!

  • I concur with Tim. Looks like a great program (and venue), but my March 2017 schedule was locked in by November of last year with dates that can’t be juggled. Perhaps next year.

  • Yes, better planning & Leadtimes would help everyone who would be interested in such a conference to plan out their time. Better planning = More Interest & Better Attendance!

  • Ditto – I’m already committed to the Missouri Valley Conference that month. Long overdue for another visit to Williamsburg.
