Why register early? Because our Early Bird registration comes with a special price: $135 for the full conference package of learning and networking on October 20-21 at Carlyle on the Green, Bethpage State Park. That’s $30 off the regular rate, but only when you register by Tuesday, September 20th. Keep in mind, the full conference package can be split between two people! After that the price goes up, so don’t wait to take advantage. In addition, first-time attendees will receive a 10% discount and students are eligible for a special rate.
We hope that you’ll join us in celebrating 25 years of this leading educational conference on Long Island! Be sure to visit the LILRC website at www.lilrc.org for more details.
