Important Information:

Only registered MAEA/NAEA members and staff are allowed to attend conference activities. Children and infants are not permitted. By registering for the MAEA Conference, I authorize MAEA the right to photograph me and to use the photographs in all formats and media for any purpose, including for education, marketing, and trade purposes. I hereby release MAEA from all claims arising out of the use of the photographs, including without limitation all claims for compensation, libel, invasion of privacy or violation of copyright ownership.

Lodging at the park is included in your registration. Camp Bob White is a rustic setting with six sleeper cabins that sleep 24, a dining hall, an activities building, and we supply two tents for workshops and activities. If you are camping, bring a sleeping bag, pillows, personal care items, towel, ear plugs? Campers will be in cabins with shared bathroom and shower facilities. Sleeping is bunk bed style with twin mattresses. If you do not desire the group camp experience, nearby Warrensburg and Knob Noster offer lodging at several hotels. If you normally camp across the road, you will need to make other arrangements. The Campground at Knob will be closed this year due to renovations.

Your registration also includes dinner on Friday, breakfast and lunch on Saturday. Meals are catered and served by the Boys Scouts. If you need a vegetarian option or have other dietary restrictions, make sure to add that information to the registration form in the appropriate box. If you need more information, please contact Tiffany Caldwell at fall.conference@maea.net

Be prepared for weather contingencies: heat, cold, rain, wind are all possible. While we have usually had good luck and pleasant conditions, we are in Missouri in early October- so be prepared for anything. Also consider packing: Bug spray, sunscreen, art kit, bag chair, umbrella, raincoat, snacks, and of course a camera! Cell phone service, depending on the carrier, can be spotty.
