Late Registrations: Before sending in late registrations, postmarked on or after September 5, please contact the registrar at to confirm that space is available.

Lodging:  Please see the Location page for more information on the host hotel and on sharing rooms with other conference participants.  Book rooms early. The conference rate is $68 plus tax. However, you must call the hotel directly no later than Aug 19th at (505) 338-5255 to reserve your room. Rooms will be at market rate after Aug 19, and may have limited availability.

Please enclose the entire fee when you register. To take advantage of the Early-bird Rate, the full balance must be postmarked by Aug 5. Regular Rates are in effect for registrations and full payments postmarked after Aug 5.
