“The Building Blocks of Communications: The Perpetual Challenge”
Make your plans now to join us for the 2019 Episcopal Communicators conference April 30 to May 3 in downtown Denver, Colorado. (April 29 and May 3 are travel dates.)
The conference will begin at 3:45 p.m. on Tuesday, April 30 and will conclude with the Polly Bond banquet the evening of Thursday, May 2. Our optional pre-conference intensives will be a little different his year, with each session running two-and-a-half hours, so participants can pick two (April 30 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.).
Our opening Eucharist on Tuesday will take place in the soaring nave of St. John’s Cathedral.
A highlight will be two keynote addresses by the Rev. Nadia Bolz Weber, author of two books with another due in January 2019. She is an ordained Lutheran pastor (ELCA) and the founder of House for All Sinners and Saints in Denver, a quirky congregation she served for more than 10 years.
Events will take place at the Curtis Hotel, located in the heart of downtown Denver in an area filled with interesting restaurants and shops. It’s also filled with pop culture references – meeting rooms are named for school yard games like dodgeball and keep-away – and we’re working to incorporate elements of that in our conference planning.
Our room block is currently full. You can book directly with the Curtis at their regular rate or you can book with other hotels nearby. Here are two; each is two blocks away:
Embassy Suites by Hilton Downtown
1420 Stout Street, Denver 80202
Courtyard by Marriott Denver Downtown
934 16th Street Mall, Denver 80202
The conference fee for members who register before Jan. 25, 2019, will be $375. After Jan. 25, the fee goes up to $425. The early rate for non-members is $500. The optional pre-conference intensive day will be an additional $125.
Cancellation policy: The conference fee will be refunded in full if cancelled up to thirty days before conference, and 50% if cancelled up to two weeks prior to conference.
