August 3 - 6 Hilton Mark Center
just outside of Washington, DC


We do our best to make sure money is not a barrier and everyone interested is able to attend. Below are some cost-effective options we offer:

  • Join our Work Scholar Program in which you can work at the Conference to earn back the full cost of registration.

  • Take advantage of our discounted registration rates if one or more of the following applies to you:
    • You have an annual income of $20,000 or less
    • You are a student
    • You are younger than 18 years or older than 65
    • You will travel more than 400 miles to attend

Discounted registration rates are now available at the advance rates. Note that the discounted registration rates can not be combined with the work scholar program.

The Conference has also arranged discounted rooms with the hotel. Please see our hotel page for details. We also offer a group room option to further cut costs. For food, we offer free snacks in the morning and night.
