The cost is $60 for KGS members and $70 for non-members. These prices include a continental breakfast, lunch, and snacks!
A new goal I have is to make sure y’all know about local/national seminars that are happening. There’s nothing worse than missing out on something great! If you know of something coming up…and would like to be featured send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s free advertising! Make sure to include all the details; who’s hosting, location, price, and a short description.
