Unfortunately, we have made the incredible difficult decision not to go forward with the 2020 Conference in Virginia. You can read more about that decision HERE.

We will be hosting a virtual online conference during the same dates (October 9th & 10th, 2020). Learn more about that event HERE.

If you have already purchased conference tickets for Virginia, go HERE to explore your options.

If you have reserved an RV or campsite or a pre-conference workshop we will be emailing you soon with your options.

May 13, 2020

Due to the current events and circumstances, we are not currently selling tickets, workshops, or vendor spaces. Ticket sales will return in late August or early September should the event take place.

If the event does not take place, we will be hosting an ONLINE CONFERENCE with live stream lectures, question and answer time, and more! Check back soon for registration!
