  I am interested in possibly attending the conference since I only live a few miles down the road and would not need a motel room.  While you list prices for motel rooms you neglect to provide information on any cost fro attending the conference itself. I would like yto know more.
  thanks, 
  Kevin, Lafayette, LA
