We think that we provided an excellent event for a total cost of only $33.60 per attendee. Not too bad for an all day conference, providing refreshments throughout the day -as well as a fabulous lunch.

Even though all speakers volunteer their time, covering their own expenses, we provided an honorarium value of over $100 per speaker while only spending about $71 per speaker. It was a small token of our gratitude for their time and effort.
