- REGISTRATION DISCOUNTS -

YOU MAY USE ONLY ONE KIND OF DISCOUNT, either a TEAM or an EARLY DISCOUNT.


TEAM DISCOUNT

Team registration saves each person on the team $10 off the registration fee. You will receive this discount IF...

1. TWO OR MORE persons from the same organization register for the same conference.

2. Each person on the team completes and submits their own "Registration Form" with the same organization name.

AND...

3. ONE Check or ONE P.O. for conference registration fees is sent to pay for the whole team at the same time and lists the team members' names.

NOTE:


EARLY REGISTRATION DISCOUNT


YOU MAY USE ONLY ONE KIND OF DISCOUNT, either a TEAM or an EARLY DISCOUNT.

 

To qualify for the early registration discount, the CHECK OR PURCHASE ORDER for the conference registration must be post marked BY JANUARY 10, 2001

 

Individuals for whom these requirements are met may deduct the "Early Registration Discount" of $10 per person.


Cancellation policy - We understand that unforeseen events may eliminate a person's ability to attend the conference for which they have registered. Therefore, we will refund registration fees according to the following policy and to the extent that we have not already incurred costs for the registrant.

For example, after a certain date we must guarantee numbers to the hotel and pay for that number whether that many people actually come and eat anything. This cost totals thousands of dollars! Also, materials and supplies must be purchased and conference handouts must be copied several weeks in advance to allow the time needed to work with the printer and to build all the conference binders. Another concern occurs when we have reached the maximum registration and have begun to turn potential participants away. It is unfair if we then lose your business at the last moment and we can not replace your registration. There are other issues in addition to these. That is why a cancellation policy is needed.

ALL CANCELLATIONS MUST BE MADE IN WRITING. EMAIL IS OK.

Refunds are calculated as follows.

Transportation from the airport to the conference site

Details about this and a map will be sent to you in your registration confirmation packet.

O'Hare and Midway are the two major airports serving the greater Chicago area.

SHUTTLES?

The least expensive means of transportation to the conference site is provided by AIRPORT EXPRESS which runs shuttle vans to and from both O'Hare and Midway Airport. CLICK on their name to go to their web site and review their fees. LOOK FOR THE "SUBURBAN SERVICE" to the Lisle-Naperville area. You can also call them for a reservation at 1-888-284-3826. My suggestion is to buy a one way shuttle going to the conference, and then save $ by sharing a ride with others from the conference for the return to the airport.

TAXIS are more expensive, about $30 one way depending on which aiport you use. You can call American Taxi at 630-920-9480 for info.


For more information about this conference contact Barry Sweeny or Roseann Deane at 630-668-2605 from 8:00 AM to 10:00 PM (central time), Monday through Saturday, or by email <>.
