Co-op Tours are Separate? Why?

Our co-ops hosts work hard to develop thoughtful tours to show of their co-op and community. In order to better gauge participation and align bus needs appropriately, we ask that participants interested in the Co-op Tours register separately. We have decreased the cost of last year’s registration fees by $20 to cover the incurred costs. In the end, you aren’t paying more if you chose to go on the co-op tour. You are paying less if you opt out of participating on the tour. Unfortunately, the co-op tours will not be developed until closer to the conference, so it is a leap of faith! We know that Portland has much to offer and we trust that our co-op hosts will show us her gems!


PAYMENT METHODS

All registration fees must be paid in advance. Payments can be made by:

  1. Credit Card: Visa, MasterCard, Discover, Diners or American Express are all accepted
