2:30 p.m.: Arrive Lansing evening
TBA: Opening reception
Saturday, March 24 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.: Conference including Mark of Excellence Award lunch where Miami students are likely to win recognition!
6 p.m.: Return to Oxford
Costs: Conference registration: $30 Hotel: +/- $30 if you find three roommates; $0 if you make arrangements to stay with friends in Lansing

Food: Friday reception and Saturday lunch are included in the registration cost. Other meals are on your own.
Registration is live at http://spjmi.eventbrite.com. Additional info on conference events will soon be posted to spjmi.org. Registration price goes up after March 15, so make your decision early.
