Emeritus Member Discount -- Last year, we offered a special 25% discount to Emeritus members who could attend only the first half or the second half of the meeting.  Because of the way the events are working out this year, we are offering a "Weekend Getaway" discount (25% off the full price) for Emeritus members and family who arrive no earlier than Wednesday night or on Thursday.  That allows attending the banquet on Friday and the Baptismo on Saturday, as well as the meeting on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.  If you wish to take advantage of the weekend discount, PLEASE USE THE PAPER FORM to register since the online system will charge you the full amount.
