Guests of MAPPsters will be welcome again this year.
The early bird rate goes through September 30. Starting October 1, the regular rate applies.
For alumni who wish to bring a guest, the guest registration rates are: $254 (early) and $274 (late). You can either register your guest with your own registration or acquire a code from Aaron or Kathryn for registering your guest later. Guest slots are limited, so act promptly if you want to bring someone with you.
The MAPP Fete 2017, an event completely organized and separately presented by MAPP Alumni, will take place the day before the MAPP Summit -- Friday October 27. The call for registration for that event will be coming soon. Remember that you need to register independently for both events.
