Frequently asked questions

Do I have to register and pay to attend the conference?
Yes. TMC 2017 attendance requires paid registration. Your church will not receive a Conference Contribution Request letter. Please register according to the category that best fits your church budget (Individual, or Group Rate), and select your Track, Breakout and Lunch Meeting before proceeding to payment.
What are Group Rates?
Group Rates are the amounts we formerly requested as the TM church’s conference contribution. The rates are based on the same standard, i.e, average church attendance. The option of choosing between individual rates and group rates allows a church to bring a group of any size and register at the rate that suits their budget. If the individual rate is a more economical choice, then select the individual rate. Register Now.
Will meals be provided or available for purchase?

Yes, both!

– Breakfast will be provided for those who have registered for Thursday morning’s Business Meeting.
– Coffee and morning refreshments will be provided both days.
– You can buy a boxed lunch, both days, onsite from our caterers, or you may want to try a local restaurant.
– Thursday evening will feature complimentary pre-dinner appetizers, dinner, followed by an after-hours show with guest artists, featuring coffee and desserts.

Please remember to reserve your dinner and/or breakfast when you register. 

What are my transport options to the event? What kind of parking can I expect?
If you are staying in our recommended hotel, a shuttle service to the conference site may be provided. Parking is ample in the large lots surround the church. There is also overflow parking in the lots across the street. Please follow the signs upon arrival to direct you to the open parking spaces.
What is the difference between Tracks and Breakouts?

– Tracks (on Thursday only) are two consecutive, 75-minute, interrelated sessions. You are encouraged to attend both sessions, but can choose to register for Part 1 of one track, and Part 2 of another, as each part works as a stand-alone session.

– Breakouts (on Friday only) are 90-minute sessions, offering you time to explore a topic with an expert.

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
For regular check-in/walk-in registration, your ID is not required. You may be asked to provide ID at the childcare center, if you are making use of the childcare facilities. (See more childcare information in the related section on the event site.)
Is my registration transferable?
Yes! If you can’t attend the conference, please send someone else in your place. Please remind your replacement to notify the registration/check-in staff to help things run as smoothly as possible.
Can I update my registration information?
Yes, you can access your registration and make any changes as needed.
Do I have to bring a printed ticket to the event?
It’s not necessary, but helpful.
What is the refund policy?
All conference registration fees are fully refundable, up to and including October 9, 2017.
Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

For general conference information, please call us at 800.299.3448, or email Elenna Poppin.
For information about Exhibitors or Sponsors, please call 626-408-3883
