Admission and Parking

Admission is completely FREE, and there is no need to preregister! Donations are greatly appreciated. (If you would like to make a donation, you can do so now using a credit card. At the conference, we will only be able to accept cash or check.) There is limited free parking right in front of the Conference Center, but our attendees also have access to a free parking garage which is part of the facility. You have to enter this garage through the UMass Lowell Inn driveway and park on the 1st or 2nd levels (if you enter from the main street, there will be a charge even though it is the same garage).

Suggested Donation

We suggest a donation of:
$10 per person or
$15 per family.

Should I Bring My Children?

While children are allowed, the conference is not really designed with them in mind, and we do encourage parents to find childcare options if possible. The conference is like a professional development day for teachers.

Expected Attendance

We had about 150 attendees in 2017, and expect a similar number this year, perhaps slightly less (we tend to be conservative with our expectations). The facility provides a very cozy and relaxed environment.

Goody Bag

Goody Bags will be available for attendees while supplies last. The bags will contain a wealth of literature from a variety of organizations, and will be available at the registration table.
