Portland, OR Conference: March 2015

A two day conference and retreat is being planned for the weekend of March 14th/15th in Portland. Registration will open to the 365 Feminist Selfie Facebook group first (as these participants of the project are planning and fundraising for the conference); secondary registration will open to other interested parties by mid February.

Please CLICK HERE to register for this conference. This registration confirms your commitment to attend and reserves your spot, as space as limited. As of February 7th, we have about 23 available spots. The registration form will be taken down when we reach our max of 40. Please see below for hotel and ticket information. If you do wish for us to assist you in finding a sister with whom to share a room (this question is on the reg form linked above), please do not reserve a room until we have contacted you.

We are holding the conference at the Country Inn and Suites by the Portland Airport. We have a group discount rate of $71 per night (+14.5% tax) for the nights of the 13th and 14th. To reserve a room at this rate, please call 503-255-2700 and ask for the 365 Feminist Selfie rate. You must reserve your room at least 21 days in advance, by February 20th. You will need a credit card to confirm your reservation and when you check in. This rate is also good for one day before and after our conference, so the nights of the 12th and 15th.

Hotel's Cancellation Policy:
If individual attendee’s need to cancel their accommodations, they must do so by calling the hotel by 6pm on the day of arrival.

RE TICKETS/COST: To help cover costs, we are asking for voluntary donations from attendees. Our suggested donation per person is $50. Any amount is helpful, however; please donate what you can. This will go directly toward the cost of reserving the meeting room at the hotel for two days and serving coffee/tea both days and lunch on Saturday, as well as paying for speakers and workshops.

In order to make your donation, please send money to the group Paypal account (currently managed by Cara Laird & Amy Rhime). The address is 365feminists (at) gmail.com. Because we are not a business and do not have a business Paypal account, we cannot use the feature that allows a Paypal button to be inserted here.  If you are not sure how to send a payment, please follow the instructions below. If you have any questions, please email 365feminists (at) gmail dot com.
