As in prior years, hotel room charges and attendance
fees are separate. The hotel cost is $91+tax per night
regardless of how many occupants are in a room (maximum
4). You will need to contact the Kelly Inn to make your
own hotel reservations if needed-
or directly at (320) 253-0606.
The attendance fee is $35.00 per day for Monday and
Tuesday. This fee covers meeting room rental fees,
breaks, lunches and Monday’s dinner. The MFSRC
organization is picking up any costs that occur on
Wednesday. These fees are in addition to the
registration fee for the conference.
I am looking forward to
meeting new people, catching up with old friends, making
new ones, and acquiring new knowledge to help handle the
complex area of child support and collections. I hope
you are able to join us!
