30th Annual Meeting of the Minds

Do not forget that August 25th is the pre-registration deadline for the 30th Annual Meeting of the Minds to be held in Kansas City, Missouri on September 25th-28th. The pre-registration price includes a $10.00 discount for both members and non-members. You may either register on-line at, click on 2014 Conference Information; you may register by mail, or you may register by calling the D.C. office. Please note: To pre-register by phone you must do so no later than August 22nd since the D.C. office will be closed the week of August 25th.

August 25th is also the last day to make hotel reservations and receive our group rate of $111.00 which includes breakfast. The conference will be held at the Embassy Suites Kansas City Airport. The phone number to make reservations is 816-891-7788. After August 25th, rooms will only be available at the standard rate and we cannot guarantee availability.

If you wish to pre-order your T-shirt during the registration, you must also complete your order before the early registration deadline. This is a great way to be sure you get the shirt you want and the size and color you need. Event shirts will be available at the Conference, but we encourage pre-order to assure your choice.

Harley-Davidson is offering Kansas City Plant Tours on Thursday, September 25th for attendees who arrive early for the conference. There is no charge for this tour and transportation will be provided to and from the hotel if needed. The tours will be one hour in duration and start at 1:00 pm, 1:20 pm, 1:40 pm, 2:00 pm, 2:20 pm, 2:40 pm. The 3:00 pm tour is full and we encourage you to book a slot if you wish to visit the plant. You must pre-register as only a limited amount of participants can be accommodated for the tour.

We really encourage you to register for the conference prior to August 25th. Not only will you save $10.00 on your registration, you will greatly assist our hosts in planning for the event. The more accurate a number provided, the easier it will be to assure they print workbooks for every attendee, not to mention stocking up on food and beverages for the Hospitality Room.
