Good News – “Bonnes Nouvelles”
The Louisiana Spirit is one of hospitality, celebration and support for their fellow neighbor. Since we announced our new location, locals have been reaching out nonstop to welcome us all to their great state.
That spirit of excitement is infectious, and Shared Hope wants to pass it along to each of you. We’ve come up with three great opportunities for you and your friends to win a free conference ticket for our 2017 event!
Each month, we’ll offer two free tickets until the Earlybird registration deadline on June 16. If your name is drawn, you will have one week to respond to the offer before the opportunity is passed along to someone else. Tickets will be transferrable, but only to individuals who have never attended.
Alumni Drawing on March 31 – The first free tickets will go to our faithful alumni attendees. We’ll draw two names from the attendee lists of our 2014 – 2016 events.
Refer-a-friend Drawing on April 28 – Second drawing will be for you and a friend. In order to be eligible you must “refer a friend” by having them sign up for our conference updates here. When they register, they should enter your name and email so we can track your entries. Each new friend registered is a new entry in the drawing for your free ticket + theirs. The more friends you refer, the better your chances are! Referrals can be logged from now until the drawing, so you better get going…!
Gulf States Drawing on May 31– Third drawing is to support our friends in the Gulf States (TX, LA, MS, AL, FL) that have not been able to send many representatives to D.C. in previous years. Anyone who resides in these states, and signs up to receive Shared Hope conference updates, will be eligible to win a free ticket.
Bad News – “Mauvaises Nouvelles”
Shared Hope recently received news from our event hosts at Hyatt that there’s a conflict with our function space during our selected conference dates. As a result, we have decided to shift the event dates by one week in order to better accommodate our conference attendance.
The new 2017 JuST Conference dates are October 24-26. Nothing else will change. We are still offering the same room rate, the same amenities and activities, the same outstanding lineup of speakers. For those attendees who have already booked hotel rooms or flights, please note that Hyatt has offered to provide support for any attendee affected by this conflict. Hotel rooms have been rebooked already. Fees related to flight changes can be reimbursed by Hyatt, certain restrictions apply. Contact our conference organizer by March 31 to get assistance or instructions for making changes to your travel plans. If you have previously requested an invoice and are no longer able to come, contact our team to submit your cancellation notice.
