SS2017 Conference Instructions and Directions

Dear SS2017 Attendee:

At two days out from our one-day conference at Lancaster Bible College, we are delighted at a good roster of registrations, a prognosis of sunny weather, and are looking forward to a great day of learning and experience. A special thanks to those who've volunteered to come early and help with setup.
Just a few directions and instructions if you are among those joining us Saturday:

CONFERENCE LOCATION: The actual conference is being held in the Sebastian Academic Center of Lancaster Bible College, 901 Eden Rd., Lancaster, PA. Turn right at first stop sign once you are on campus and drive past the security booth, curling around to 2nd to last main parking area. You will see the SAC building to your left. There will be signs directing you to SAC and specifically to the LCW writers conference. Lancaster Bible College is basically at the junction of Hwys 222 and 30, but access is turning off 30 onto Hwy 272 (north of 30, not south), then turning right onto Eden Rd., which will lead directly pass entrance to college. It is too big to miss. However, if you'd like to check out both locations BEFORE arrival, here is a link to LBC directions and campus map.

REGISTRATION/APPOINTMENT SIGN-UPS: Registration opens at 7:45 a.m. Signups for faculty appointment are open at same time, first come, first serve. Please be aware that you can sign up for only ONE appointment before opening session. After first workshop, you can sign up for a second if available. In afternoon, any remaining slots can be reserved at will.

FOOD AND DRINK: If you need caffeine to get your day started, be aware you may need to bring your own; likewise water or other drinks. There IS a cafe onsite at LBC, but it is in a different building and does not open before 8 a.m. There will be coffee and a wide variety of drinks available with our lunch soup and salad buffet, but no refreshments at the actual conference location. There is a drinking fountain, and if necessary, you can walk over to the campus cafe.

BOOKSTORE: The conference bookstore takes both credit card and check, so do plan for some shopping. Marlene Bagnull's selection of writing craft titles is easily one of the largest outside Amazon, so worth the browse.

And finally, if you have not yet registered, pre-registration is now closed, but you are welcome to walk in Saturday for the walk-in price of $65.

See you Saturday,
Jeanette Windle
President, Lancaster Christian Writers
