The Council is pleased to extend the member rate to all members of Council-recognized affinity groups, whether they are Council members or not. Additionally, the Council will pay Council-recognized affinity groups $100 for every registered fall conference participant who is one of their members but not a Council member and who registers for the conference using the appropriate discount code. If your foundation would like to take advantage of this initiative and if your foundation is a member of a Council-recognized affinity group but not a member of the Council, please contact your affinity group to receive the appropriate discount code.
