Q: If I'm not from ACA Illinois or an ACA member can I still attend your events and conferences?
A: Yes! We welcome folks every year from all over the US and Canada! Everyone is welcome. We encourage folks to attend events and conferences that best fit their needs, regardless of location or membership status. In fact over 40% of our attendees aren't ACA members.
Q: Do you know who I could share a room with during Mid States and the Executive Seminar?
A: While we do not arrange room or ride sharing, we offer a Facebook group that allows you to post your needs and find others who need a room mate or to share a ride. Click here to join today!
Q: How does the Mid States registration fee structure work for groups? I don't understand it.
A: You aren't alone. And we continue to work at figuring out the best way to explain it. Thank you for your patience.
If you are bringing three or more people, you would choose the group rate. The group rate allows you to bring up to five people and you can choose to pay additional fees to add people. Let's run down an example, shall we?
Scene: Camp Wabash wants to bring 3 people to the conference.
Fees: Camp Wabash will select the group registration which is $475 as the base. Then they will have a "meal fee" of $30 per person, totaling $90. So in total, their fee will be $565.
Here's the fun part - Camp Wabash could bring two more people for just $60 more! The group rate is good for up to five people. So if Camp Wabash brings five people for $625, that is only $125 per a person for three days of keynotes, events, and education sessions.
Now, if Camp Wabash had six people who wanted to attend, it would be the group rate fee of $625 plus $75 for each additional person, bringing the total to $700. Even tough at many conferences you can't even send 2 people for that rate, you get to bring SIX people to Mid States!
If any member of Camp Wabash's group wanted to add a pre-conference Skills Lab, that may increase their fee. Or if the camp's executive or director wants to attend the Executive Seminar, it would be an additional $150 on top of their group rate.
