1. Invitation: GRC and AMARC-NA members are welcome to attend the NCRC conference in Montreal June 7-13.
2. Money: A US dollar rate was set for registrants who want to pay in US funds. The US-dollar rate would be $155 for non-members, $145 for members. (Or, you can pay in Canadian dollars - $190/$175). In the past, registration has included a couple of meals a day - I'll have more details soon, including a registration form and the housing information. AMARC members will be counted as NCRA members, since AMARC is a member of NCRA (one more good reason to renew your AMARC membership).
4. Meeting space: We have been offered that NCRC organizers will reserve us a room on or near the campus to use for any GRC &/or AMARC-specific functions during the whole conference. It will be as close as possible to the main venue. We can probably have a room that fits 40 or 50 people at no charge. My first choice of what was discussed - it's being looked into - is the First Peoples' House, which fits about 50 There is also a ballroom in the grad centre that fits up to 150 people, if we want that much space - for that one, there would be some kind of room charge to defray (I don't have an amount). Let's get a tentative head count.
9. Exhibitors: Conference sponsorships are offered at $250 (Canadian) for exhibitors. This will be the first time exhibitors have been invited to an NCRC. If you want to reach Canadian stations with pitches, NCRC would be the place to find them.
