It does appear that payment for the conference and the optional bus tour of Chicago Polonia can all be paid for directly through the PGSA web site. Payment is acceptable through PayPal or directly from your own credit card. There are “early bird” discounts for members of the PGSA. Non-members can attend at a higher cost or can become members to take advantage of the lower costs for members.
Please visit the links above to get all of the details on the program.
The PGSA does have a fantastic Annual Conference. They are doing something unique in this conference in that both of the key speakers will be providing a “collaborative” program so that the attendee does not have to choose one speaker over another. This can be referred to as “team teach”. You will get both of the speakers who will speak on each topic at the conference.
If you have any Polish ancestral connection, this will be a great opportunity for you to jump in with both feet to attend this all-day conference conveniently located close by in DesPlaines.
You will not be sorry participating in this annual event!
