Conference Registration and Meals Information

This year we are trying something new in regard to meals and registration:

If you are an active or associate AGSD member before May 1, 2014, the organization is going
to cover the cost of all meals for you and your immediate household family members. By paying only $35, you are paying for the registration for your entire household - and Friday’s dinner and Saturday’s lunch are included!

Non-members will be paying $75 per adult for the registration fee [includes cost of the meals].
This is the general amount paid each year for each person’s meals plus a registration fee and is
now inclusive of both. Meals for children 12 and under of non-members will be also be free.

Professionals that are not members will be paying a registration/meal cost of $50.

Our hope is that we will have a larger number of attendees at our meals, giving more of an opportunity to meet and greet others involved with GSD plus more time and interaction with professionals in a social atmosphere.

The AGSD understands that having a family member with a rare medical condition
is very difficult, so by gathering each year, we affirm and encourage each other.
