    Here's what I have on the conference for 2010:

    The KY/TN Area Conference is April 17 - 18 at St. David's Episcopal

    Brentwood. Cost for the conference is $35 for Leaders, $45 for LLL
    members, and $55 for general public; spouse/caregivers are $10. This registration fee includes lunch, catered by Jason's Deli. The conference hotel is The Residence Inn, Brentwood. Suite style rooms are only $84/night.

    We have planned a full day of great sessions for parents on April 17.
    We are lucky to have Marie Beam, EUS Administrator for Leader
    Accreditation Department, as our keynote speaker. Marie will also be
    presenting some sessions throughout the conference. Other speakers

    You're welcome! Everyone, post if you're going! I'm on the fence. I really, really want to go, but I don't really have the money.

    maybe you could find somebody to share a room
    Call a local leader too.

    I know I attended the OH conference in 2008 . We do have a buddy program for sharing rooms, but I'd still be out nearly $100 bucks....plus the cost of meals before and after. So on the fence I sit.

    I didn't get to go to that one

    When we do go we always skip the meals too much $$$
    and just bring a small cooler and to a local store.

    Packed dinners would be good for the night before and on the way home. I'm also debating staying at my dad's house since it's only 2 hours away. I'd still have to get up pretty early to go, but it'd save me 50%. DH thinks I should consider going without DD and sharing a room, but I've never left her before and I'm afraid of becoming engorged unless I pump (and I'm to lazy for that LOL). She's 2, and would be find without me for the night, I think, but I don't know if my boobs concur. I'd love to go without her, so that I could focus on the meetings more. Ahhhh, I wish I weren't so indecisive when it comes to spending money .
