Included is the latest news on the August 2016 convention in Kansas City, Missouri, excerpt below.

INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION NEWS
Convention Rates Set: Registration fees for the 2016 International Convention in Kansas City,
Missouri (Aug. 4-7, 2016) are now set. The rate for members and female guests is $300. The rate for male guests is $200 (they will have all meals with members except the continental breakfast on Friday and the brunch on Saturday). Bus transportation and tours of the International office are included in the fee. Additional tours to historic, shopping and entertainment destinations may be available on a “pick and pay” basis.

As a reminder, we need to obtain a better idea of how many guests plan to attend, as this may affect room rates. If you wish to attend (and we hope you do!) we’ll need a full $100 deposit by Feb. 15, 2015. We can’t guarantee your attendance if we don’t have your full deposit by that date. However, you can reserve a spot immediately by putting down at at least $20 in the meantime, provided you pay the full deposit by Feb. 15, 2015. As many of you who have hosted conventions know, your early deposit is extremely helpful for planning purposes.

You can make a hotel room reservation with the Westin Kansas City at Crown Center through the 85th Anniversary Convention page on our web site. Please do not call the hotel directly.
