New categories and options in 2010
One of the six simultaneous sessions offered at the 2010 conference in Philadelphia will solely consist of content and presentations related to films. The film pass is a way for SDS to offer the opportunity to local communities to participate in this aspect of the conference. For $20, a participant will be able to view all films and presentations in the film track. the attendee will not be able to participate in any other presentations or social events.
Available to conference registrants who bring family, personal care attendants, or friends to the 2010 conference and who wish them to participate in films, social, and conference-sponsored meal events, the adjunct pass is intended to ensure that such family members, personal care attendants, and friends are able to do so by allowing SDS to anticipate the demand and costs for space and meals.
Up to five (5) adjunct passes that cost $50 each can be purchased during registration. Adjunct Pass holders will not be SDS members.
