About the Conference: Fees, Venue, Schedule

Day guests or commuters pay a fee of $280 per person that includes access to all conference sessions Friday evening through Sunday lunch, including the Wilberforce Award banquet Saturday evening, lunch on Saturday and Sunday, and use of the health club. This fee also helps to covers costs for morning and afternoon refreshment breaks, audio-visual and meeting room fees, speaker expenses, conference materials, and other conference costs.

Guests arriving by air should fly in and out of Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD), which is the closest airport to the Lansdowne Resort. Shuttle transportation is available between the resort and IAD for $25 each way. A one-way taxi ride is approximately $30. If you are staying at a different hotel, you may wish to ask them about transportation options from IAD to that hotel.

Guests flying out on Sunday should schedule a departure time for 2pm or later to allow time for airport transportation and check in and a quick lunch. If you are staying offsite we suggest you check out Sunday morning, bring your luggage to the Lansdowne Resort and depart for the airport from the resort.
