2024 Registration Information

Registration options

We know that it is important for attendees to be able to plan for conference expenses and are working hard to finalize these costs.  Meanwhile, we have put together our best estimates for conference registration and housing. Note: all costs are listed in Canadian dollars, are subject to change before registration opens in April, and do NOT include NAME membership or Early-bird discount rates, which will be announced when registration opens.

We are also organizing an amazing, all-day field experience for all conference attendees that will highlight our coastal ecosystems, institutional collaborations, and indigenous and cultural knowledge.  We are not yet sure if it will be included in conference registration or offered as an add-on experience, so registration and lodging options may also be adjusted once this has been finalized. Thank you for your patience as we work to plan this exciting opportunity and ramp up our fundraising efforts!

Single-day Registrationincludes plenaries, concurrent sessions, and lunch on the selected day. Does not include any field excursions.

Lodging

Conference registration does not include lodging.  However, we will keep lodging costs as low as possible by offering all options at cost, based on Pearson’s lodging and meal charges.  Staying overnight and sharing meals is an important part of the camaraderie and networking inherent in our in-person conference.  So we encourage all attendees to maximize their conference experience by taking advantage of the comfortable lodging and delicious meals offered by Pearson College.  In fact, part of the charm and beauty of the campus is its remote location at the southern tip of Vancouver Island, where  off-campus dining, shopping, and accommodations are not readily available nearby.
