August 31, 2015 SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: We have about 20 spots left for the retreat (as of 8/31).  If you wait until the resource fair to sign up for the retreat it could fill up before that time. Once we reach full capacity, for those who have registered and paid online, you will be placed on a waiting list in the order the paid transaction was received.  We always have people change their mind and decide not to go - so don't lose hope!  If you are placed on the waiting list and a spot does not open up, you will be given a full refund in the manner in which you paid (the standard refund date for all others is still September 1).
