2016 NAEA Convention March 17-19, 2016. Chicago, Illinois. Who's with me?
I've never been before and when I saw that NAEA will be coming back to the midwest in 2016 I decided that would be a good time to go! That will hopefully be my last semester in my graduate program and being the planner that I am, I've started brainstorming ways to raise the necessary funds and trying to talk friends into going and sharing a hotel room. My schools are very supportive, but I'm not counting on the money being there and I don't want to put too much of a burden on my family... Except for my parents and in-laws, who I'm sure will be thrilled to have a few sleepovers with my kids while my husband is at work and I'm in Chicago. :)
Here's a question for those of you who have attended a national convention before- about how much has it cost you? I know that the cost of a flight will vary greatly, but what was your average cost for hotels, registration, meals, etc.? I'm thinking my money raising goal should be $1,000 because who knows what flights will be in two years! Does $1,000 sound like a reasonable amount?
