3-day on-site breakfast and lunch

The 3 day on-site breakfast and lunch package includes a continental breakfast and a buffet lunch located at the CUNY Graduate Center on Thursday through Saturday, July 21-23, 2016. Vegetarian options are available. Please be aware our actual costs are higher, but we are subsidizing this food package to help make it more affordable.
*We recommend the 3 Day On-Site Food Package for those who would like the ability to maximize their conference attendance, as pursuing other meal options in Midtown Manhattan can be time-consuming.

Sunday Social Event

At this time we are proud to announce our main social event will be a sightseeing boat and land tour of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. This tour will depart from Lower Manhattan ( on Sunday morning, July 24, 2016, at 8:30am. . Following these tours, at 11:30am,  there will be an open air picnic in a Battery Park City, just to the left of the tour dock exit. The picnic site will offer amazing views of the Statue of Liberty as well as New York Harbor, and will be a wonderful way to close the conference in a relaxed and personal picnic setting. 


The deadline for cancellations was January 15, 2016.  No refunds are available after January 16, 2016.
