Conference Live Streaming:

For those wishing to view the Conference via live streaming, the entrance fee is the same as the in-person rate, $65.00.  You will be given a link to the live stream within 7 days of the conference, via e-mail.

Overnight Stay:

The Conference will be at St. Edward’s Catholic Church in Keizer, OR.  There will be a block of 30 hotel rooms at the local Best Western.  Ask for the “St Edward’s, Ralph Martin Conference” hotel block when you call.  The Best Western local number is (503) 390-4733.  If you are planning to spend the night in Keizer, I suggest you make the reservation soon. (no matter which hotel you wish to stay at).  I am told this is a busy weekend.

Lunch on Saturday:

We will be serving lunch on Saturday.  You will be charged separately at the time you register.  There are two reasons for that:  1)  We will be live streaming the two day event; and 2) Not everyone will want to buy a lunch.  Just trying to keep the registration process simple.
