Reminder: Childcare at the conference

Good evening, ARLISians! Just a friendly reminder that the due date for conference childcare registration is Monday, January 9. If you plan to use conference childcare, please register at your earliest convenience!

On-site conference childcare is being provided by A Charmed Life, a local professional service carefully selected by the EB. Care is available from Monday, February 6 through Wednesday, February 8 from 8 am to 5 pm for infants up to age 6, for full or partial days. Participants will be asked to pay $40 per child/per day to help offset the cost of care. This rate is open to ARLIS/NA members and non-members.

Participants may register for childcare using the online conference registration form.  For those of who have already registered for the conference, you may add childcare by contacting Shannon Lorenz directly at s.lorenz@arlisna.org, or by phone at 414-908-4954, ext. 106.

Help make this new initiative a success and try out conference childcare! If you have any questions please email Anna Simon at ajs299@georgetown.edu.
