LATEST NEWS - Friday, feb. 27
THE CONFERENCE IS ON!
Based on the timing of the conference with Lent, we annually face the prospect of inclement weather on our event day. In years like this, where the forecast warrants close attention, we redouble our prayer efforts and try to get the best possible information to share with you.
Our first concern is your safety. Based on current forecasts, for the great majority of our attendees, this will mean allowing some extra travel time on Saturday morning - not postponing your trip. We are thankful for that! Oklahoma City is expected to get a dusting to 1" of snow on Friday afternoon with roads staying manageable and clearing afterwards.
Here are links for the latest weather and road conditions:
Please understand that we are committed to this conference going forward as planned. We are a non-profit organization staffed by volunteers and our primary purpose is to present this conference to you each year. Working with professional organizations like the Embassy Suites Conference Center means that we commit substantial financial resources in advance of the event to secure the the space, staffing, food and beverage. We also secure speakers, their travel and their accommodations. Unless there is a catastrophic weather event - i.e., blizzard conditions that shut down all of the interstates for more than 24 hours - the conference cannot be cancelled. This is a standard part of all venue contracts. Even with a catastrophic weather event, we would need to make every attempt to reschedule the conference for a later date.
We feel it is necessary for you to understand why we cannot offer refunds based on the possibility of bad weather - or even more challenging travel conditions. We have maintained transparency as an organization throughout our history and have worked hard to be good stewards of the commitment you make to us. Several people who were concerned about the weather requested that their registrations be transferred to another person. We will happily accommodate those requests and welcome all attendees. We ask that those who receive a transferred registration pick up the name badge of the original registrant and proceed to the registration desk for further instructions.
Please continue to pray for the conference, that weather will not adversely affect the ability for attendees to travel safely and that the Holy Spirit lead us in all things. We look forward to seeing you and serving you on Saturday morning.
