Annual Conference  

Friday in March (8:30-5:30, with 8 CEs)    Plan one day conference because attendance was low on Saturdays. Reduces CEs by 2.  Proposed prices adjusted accordingly.

Committee recommends changing to a conference venue, given prior issues with parking, registration space, technology.  After researching 6 venues, we recommend the following because of the cost and quality:

Recommended Venue:


 1355 West 3100 South  (Prices based on 175 attendees)

Large Hall for 250 & 4 break out rooms, free parking, wifi = $1560 with 20% nonprofit discount.  AV and linens = $1000 estimated.  Estimated total:  $2560

(Note:  Other venues ranged from $3,300-6,200)

Catering = $4500 estimated.  Provided by JK Indulgence (a preferred caterer at the Utah CCC and lowest cost) $19.00-22.00 pp lunch, full service; snacks/drinks approx $5.00 pp


Venue + catering:  $7060  (20% deposit, due when reserving= $1312)

DOPL Email lists $350  (Committee recommends purchasing DOPL lists for LCSWs, CMHCs, LMFTs.)

Total Estimated Expenses:  $7410

Proposed Conference Fees:

$160 for Members  ($20 per CE hour)

$200 for non-members ($20 per CE hour + price of membership)

$75 for Students ($20 less than last year, when adjusted for lower CEs)

Estimated Registration Revenue:  $32,000 (10 students, 87 members, 87 non-members)

(Note:  If registration is as low as 100 registration revenue is $18,000)

Projected Net:  $24,590  (Adjusted based on vendor and sponsor revenue, below)


New initiative
Charge $250-300 per table?
Perhaps that would generate $3000

Sponsor funded items:

Coloring Pencils $200

Programs $200

Other (e.g., badges) $200

Lunch and/or snacks: ?
