Planning Your Event

Planning an Event

Contact Residential Education and Services at least 6 months prior to your event. Most arrangements can be made by phone or email, while others may require an appointment with our Conference Coordinator. This is the time for a thorough discussion of all specifics and details. We can help you make all the necessary decisions and to determine which of our facilities and services fit your needs.
Our on-line summer conference housing adds convenience and control. To get started with the on-line registration you may give us a call and we can walk you through the process, or you may go to Book Procedures on the left and follow the simple instructions that are listed.
