Registration for the Girls Club Getaway is $119 (Early, September 10–October 31), $129 (Regular, up to three weeks prior), and $139 (Late, final three weeks prior). All registrations must be made online by major credit card or PayPal, or by check (registration will not be activated until check is received in our office). We are not able to accept registrations by phone. Register early to insure attendance, room selection, and rate availability. Registration includes all sessions, an event notebook, and the Saturday luncheon. About ten days prior to the event, you will receive an email with information and instructions about the Getaway (the letter will also be on the event page here on the website).
Hotel Room Reservations
Your event registration does NOT include a hotel room. You must reserve and pay for your hotel room separately. We’ve negotiated reduced hotel room rates for our Getaway attendees. When you register for the Getaway, you will receive a confirmation email that provides the room reservation discount code for your hotel. If you do not receive the confirmation email within a few minutes, you may not be registered and should contact us. If you want to come early or stay late at the hotel, the event rate is also available Thursday and Saturday nights of the Getaway weekend. Room reservations must be guaranteed with a credit card but may be cancelled without penalty prior to arrival (ask the hotel for details and deadlines). Don’t wait to reserve your hotel room! We cannot always guarantee availability of a room at the special reduced event rates past the rate cut-off date.
Registration Refund Policy
You may cancel your event registration without penalty during Early Registration. Refunds during the Regular Registration will be subject to a $25.00 cancellation fee. Refunds are not available during Late Registration. Registration transfers are allowed free of charge at any time but are the responsibility of the registrant. You simply need to let us know the new person’s name and contact information. If you are unable to attend the Getaway, the full amount paid may be receipted as a tax-deductible donation upon the written or emailed request of the registrant prior to the first day of the event.
Children: We allow only nursing infants (lap babies) in the ballroom. Mobile (crawling or toddling) children are not allowed in the ballroom for safety reasons and for courtesy to the other guests. To be fair to all, we cannot make exceptions to this rule. Nursing mother registrations will be limited and capped for each event. The $10.00 fee helps to defray the additional cost of helpers, extra seating, and AV for an audio feed.
Nursing Mothers: Mothers with nursing infants agree to use only the reserved seating designated for “Nursing Mothers.” There will be fewer chairs at these tables for more room, and infants must be in a carrier on the floor or in the mother’s lap. Strollers and floor blankets are not allowed in the ballroom at any time but may be used in the designated nursing mother area outside the ballroom doors (audio will be provided).
Daughters: Daughters are always welcome, especially for this Girls Club Getaway. However, the recommended minimum registration age is 14. We want to allow young women who are mature and able to interact easily with adults to attend, but we don’t want adult discussion unnecessarily restrained because of a too-young or perceptibly immature girl at the table. Please be sensitive to the maturity of your child around other adults
