Announcement from the Board of Directors

Over the years, OR-PRIMA has been able to offset the rising costs of hosting two conferences each year through generous sponsorship contributions.  Our amazing sponsors have allowed us to keep costs low for members while still providing two great educational events.  Unfortunately, the cost of hosting these conferences, including: conference facilities across the state, securing high-caliber presenters, food and beverage, and entertainment, continue to increase.  Due to these rising costs, we have decided to raise our rates for conference attendance for the first time in many years.  While this decision was not made lightly, it was necessary in order to enable us to continue offering these important events in a way that our membership has come to value and expect.

Further information regarding new pricing for the fall conerence will be announced later this summer.

Thank you for your continued support of OR-PRIMA.
