Answers to Frequently Asked Questions
If you have a FAQ question, please use the form at the bottom of this page to send it in.
Why do I have to pay?
Conferences and conventions are special events, not regular meetings. They require months of planning, preparation, and money to present. Since most events are held in hotels or convention centers, there is a charge for use of the facilities. Along with this charge, the facility will require that the group purchase food and coffee. Other expenses include travel and lodging for the speakers, printing of flyers and schedules, postage, and supplies. A large event requires a substantial amount of money.
How can I support someone else who may not be able to afford to attend the SUS convention?
When to come and go?
The hotel is offering conference room rates from Thursday 1/19 through Tuesday 1/25. The actual SUS convention starts on Friday at noon and closes on Sunday at noon. We also offer an optional sunset cruise on Sunday evening, and a whale watching/snorkeling cruise on Monday all day.
