Housing

In the homes of local hosts. Please arrange your transportation so you only need housing for Friday and Saturday nights (except AdComm members who arrive Thursday). If you need to stay extra days, please contact Ruth at the NWTRCC office or help by finding your own accommodations.

Cost

We ask $15 registration fee to cover food and facility costs, and we may need to ask for additional donations. But, no one is turned away for lack of funds!

Business Meeting

All are welcome to NWTRCC’s business meeting. Proposals for the meeting Sunday morning are due September 25 so that there is time to circulate them to the NWTRCC network for comments.

Travel

Call the office if you have questions. If you want to book travel (early is good!), plan to arrive by 6 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 1. The meeting ends Sunday, Nov. 3 at noon.

Transportation (Click here for directions):

Drive at your own risk; parking is not easy, and there will not be parking with our meeting space. Driving directions and other information will be sent after registration. We will ask that people who can use public transportation from arrival points plan for that.

Please register by October 15, 2013, if possible, and especially if you need housing.
