Selecting Break-Out Sessions
Q: How do I know where my break-out sessions are?
A: If you’ve pre-registered your session preferences, they will be printed on the back of your name tag along with room locations.
Q: How do I select my break-out sessions if I didn’t register them in advance?
A: If you haven’t yet selected your sessions, you’ll have a chance during registration from 8-9am, on a first-come, first-served basis:
- Come prepared: Check out our schedule (DeathOK.com/schedule) which indicates the spaces available in each session. Click on the links to read more about each presentation. Make notes on your first and second choice for each time period. There’s even a form you can download for this purpose. Print it and bring it with you.
- Arrive on time: On-site session selection is on a first-come, first-served basis. When registration opens at 8am you’ll be able to select from the sessions that have room available. Knowing your first and second choices in advance and arriving on time will give you the best opportunity to get into your preferred sessions.
- Session walk-ins: Once the available number of seats in a given session are claimed, the session will be closed. The rosters will be posted on each classroom door. If there are no-shows and seats become available, our hall volunteers will admit additional walk-ins. During the afternoon, our community space options and Death Cafe space can accommodate all who wish to attend.
Q: Can I change my mind about what sessions I attend after pre-registering for them?
A: Yes, you can register for different sessions from 8-9am or seek to attend them on a walk-in basis.
Q: There’s too much to choose from! Will you be recording sessions?
A: Yes, we’re working on recording some of our sessions – watch our e-newsletter after the event for details on accessing the recordings along with other resources.
Ticket Purchase Questions
Q: Where is my ticket?
A: Please print your PayPal receipt and bring it as proof of purchase; the receipt serves as your ticket to the event. (If you didn’t purchase your ticket via our web site please contact us to make alternative arrangements.)
Q: Why does my receipt reference Sacred Earth Foundation?
A: Our fiscal agent is the 501(c)(3) non-profit, the White Eagle Memorial Preserve and Sacred Earth Foundation.
Q: Are you providing Continuing Education Credits?
A: Unfortunately, as an all-volunteer, first-time event we do not have the capacity to offer CEU credits. As an alternative, we are offering this Affidavit of Clock Hours.
Q: Are you providing housing or hotel discounts?
A: The event is designed primarily for participants from the Portland metro area; others are welcome but need to make independent arrangements for accommodations and transportation. Looking for lodging near the event? Please don’t call Reed. Consult TripAdvisor or other internet sources.
