    1. The last Fenner Conference cost $200 for Early Bird tickets so we thought we were doing quite well with our prices. The total cost of the conference will probably be about twice the amount we get from ticket sales.

      1. Why does the conference costs so much? Is the venue too expensive for the money we have? Why not go ‘down market’? Can our members afford such prices, even if they are half price?

        Anyway, thanks for replying to my comment, even if you haven’t answered it.

        Best wishes for its success.

  1. I still don’t understand why expenses to hold the conference are so high. Why not hold ir somewhere cheap or even free. Don’t we have any sympathetic organizations with a hall? The money saved could be used for publicity.

    Sorry to be such a pain in the butt.

    1. We will be talking about the budget at the meeting on 28th June so I’ll pass your comments on. Look out for budget details in the meeting notes (which I’ll email out after the meeting).
