Wow! This was my 4th conference and it was THE BEST by far! Every session was powerful and meaningful and gave me something to take away, think about and deepen my practice. I’ve been in a bit of a rut... things getting a bit mundane, people hearing the same message from me. Wow, I’m revived and energized and ready to make some changes in my daily practices and in what I do with my teachers. Sooooo excited! Thank you for each and every little detail you included to make this a powerful week!

This conference rejuvenates my passion for math, AVMR, MRIS, for my profession. Thank you for all your hard work in putting this conference together. I am excited for the direction that Math Recovery is going. It is always great to network with folks from other places.

My head hurt from the amount of information I was able to walk away with. I continue to feel supported in my growth from each Math Recovery community member, not only from my state colleagues but also from Math Recovery staff. I would like to go to the conference in 2019. Thank you!

FAQs

Registration

What are the registration fees?
The registration fees will differ based on whether you are a member or non-member. Register before the early bird registration date expires to get the best value.
Where is the group registration button?
Each individual must register him/herself while logged into their account. The registration process will automatically link to a participants account to verify certifications for specific session choices.

If a group needs to pay together please put the same PO number in the Purchase Order field during the payment section. If a third party registers for you, please make sure they fill in the conference attendees information and not their own.
What is the importance of individual registration?
There are several session choices an individual can choose during the registration process that will require individual certifications for each participant; therefore, you will need to be logged into your Math Recovery® account to connect your certifications with your registration. If you have not attended a specific course prior to the conference, you will not have the required certification for some session choices. If you do not have an account already, see the FAQ directed to this topic. If a third party registers for you, please make sure they fill in the conference attendees information and not their own.
What if I am not a member, do not have an account, or cannot remember my password?
If you are not a Math Recovery® Member and do not have an account, you must "create" a complimentary account before registering for the conference. If you have previously taken a course or registered for past conferences and cannot remember your password, please do not create a second account. Click on the "forgot password" button and follow the instructions to reset your password.
Can I bring a guest with me included in my registration fee?
As always, we encourage that you bring colleagues and friends with you to the US Math Recovery Council® conference; however, each registered participant will need to pay a registration fee for their own attendance.
How can I get a discount on my registration fees?
Register early and maintain your membership to receive the most value.
