Frequently asked questions
Is there a place to register on-line?
Sorry, no, we are not set up for that at this time. The only way to register is to send a check to MD CAN, P.O. Box 111, Keedysville, MD 21756. A registration form is here.
Do you have financial backing for this conference?
No, it is funded exclusively with the registration fees which cover the cost of the facility, the meals, and with a small portion going to other meeting expenses, such as lunches for speakers and copying expenses.
Is MD CAN a non-profit organization?
No, this event was just the brain-child of a few conservative grassroots activists. We expect at the January 8th meeting for a group to come together, plan to meet again and determine if MD CAN should have a legal structure.
Can I get a refund of my registration fee if I can’t make it after all?
No, sorry, the fee is non-refundable. A head count is required at an early date by the DoubleTree Hotel.
What happens if we have severe winter weather forcing a postponement?
We will make every effort to reach you through the contact information you have provided. If the weather is so horrible that authorities are warning drivers to stay off roads throughout the state, you can be sure we will postpone the conference. The hotel will then work with us to re-schedule the conference on a mutually agreed-upon Saturday. If you cannot make the new date, we will refund your registration fee. Any questions, please see the contact link at the top of the page.
Are speakers receiving a speaker’s fee?
No, all speakers are giving freely of their own time for this event. However, we are sure their organizations appreciate donations and you may see them separately to make a donation if you wish.
Will speakers be available for us to meet them?
We are encouraging speakers to stay for lunch, for breaks and for the networking time at the close of the conference.
Will there be some way during the meeting for me to find other like-minded activists from my county?
Yes, we plan to identify attendees by county.
Will there be a table on which to place literature for my group?
Yes, tables will be available for group literature. If you are interested in a table, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know. The charge is $15 per table which is what the hotel is charging us.
I don’t eat meat. Will there be some accommodation for vegetarians?
Yes, you may choose a veggie wrap on your registration form. If you have an old form and a check-off hasn’t been added for a vegetarian choice, then please simply note your request on the form.
I am planning to stay overnight, are there rooms available for MD CAN conference attendees?
Overnight Accommodations at the DoubleTree are available for $99 + 13% tax. For more information, please call Wendy at 410.224.3150, x2615
