Spring Conference

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)


Q:  Are hotel rooms a separate fee from the conference registration?

A: Yes.  The conference registration of $70 only covers the conference, speakers, workshops, bag, and dinner on Sunday night.  Hotel and Monday breakfast are on your own (unless you are staying at the Holiday Inn Portland-Airport Hotel where breakfast is included.).

Q: Does the hotel have rooming blocks / special pricing available?

A: Yes.  We have arranged rooming blocks and special pricing.  On the Spring Conference Page you can find the # to call to reserve your rooms.

Q: Is an adviser required to attend? 

A: Yes.  We recommend 1 adviser/chaperone for every 10-15 students.  Not all chaperones need to be present at the conference and/or register.  If you want them on the bus or just for the hotel supervision that’s fine too.

Q: Can my school stay at a different hotel? 

A: Yes. Although it is recommend to stay at the conference hotel for convenience, in the instance of unavailable rooms, Embassy Suites is just down the road with a group rate (Only available until April 6th). Also, please remember you will need transportation between your own hotel and the Conference Center.
