TCF 41st Annual National Conference - July 27 thru 29, 2018 in St. Louis, MO.
 “Gateway to Hope and Healing” is the theme of next year’s event, which promises more of this year’s great National Conference experience. The 2018 Conference will be held at the Marriott St. Louis Grand Hotel.
 
Registration is now open for the conference, and can be done on TCF's Website.  Cost of registration for an Adult is $115, for Children 9-17, Full time College Students and Active Duty Military is $55.
 
Hotel Registrations are being accepted at the Marriott Reservation line (800-397-1282) with the TCF Discounted rate of $140 per night plus tax.  Each attendee will only be able to reserve two rooms.  If you need more than two rooms, please contact the National Office to make arrangements for your reservations.
 
Please see the National Website for other information pertaining to the conference, such as the Keepsake Memorial Journal, Introducing TCF's Marketplace, Ordering a Conference Memento and Conference Sponsorships.
 
 Our Chapter:  We are happy to announce that we will again be "sponsoring" some of the expense for our "Members" who are attending the National Conference. We will reimburse you in August (after the Conference) for up to $205.00 which covers the cost of adult registration, the Saturday Night Dinner and the Walk on Sunday. We will do this on a first come, first served basis for 18 people.

As we all know, the cost of attending a National Conference can be prohibitive for some. So, there are a few ways to ease that cost a bit. One of them is sharing the hotel room with another attendee (TCF National has a Facebook page just for this purpose). Another option is to NOT eat all your meals at the hotel. Luckily this year’s venue has many food choices in reasonable price ranges that are within walking distance.

Please consider attending this. Any of us who have gone to a Conference will tell you it is an amazing experience. Please reach out if you have any questions and get registered!!!

 Our Chapter:  We also have this Wonderful Offer: 

2 of our families that are attending the National Conference, Tammy Alexander Wickell and Barbara Dziedzic, with their spouses, have offered to make a display of our loved ones that will be placed on a billboard, with a Florida themed background at the Conference.  If anyone would like their child(ren)’s photo(s) included on the memory board, please email the photo(s), along with their name (and dates if you want them listed) you would like displayed to tammywickell@gmail.com.


Deadline will be July 1, 2018 to get us your photo since we will be sending them off to be printed, so that all the photos will be the same size. We will be decorating the board when we arrive in St. Louis.
