Below is an evolving list of Frequently Asked Questions related to the conference. If you do not see your question addressed here, please send us an email at conference@farmtocafeteriacanada.ca

  1. If I submitted a proposal that was accepted, do I get a reduced conference registration rate?

We understand many prospective delegates have a long way to travel and/or represent educational intuitions or not-for-profit organizations. For this reason, we are striving to keep conference rates as low as possible for everyone who will be attending. As such, we are pleased to offer an early bird rate of just $250+GST.  This is the only available conference discount, so we encourage all presenters to register by the early bird deadline of March 15, 2019.

  1. I am presenting, when will I receive more details about which day and time I am presenting?

The conference program is currently being finalized and all presenters will receive specific details about their sessions by March 30, 2019. This includes date and time of your presentation, specifications for Audio Visual (including date by which to submit final PowerPoint slides), an connection to other presenters (if you are in a combined session).

  1. I would like to volunteer, how do I sign up?

At present, we are not seeking volunteers for the conference, however; as the conference draws closer, we may solicit volunteer help. If you would like to be placed on our volunteer waiting list, please contact the conference coordinator.

  1. How can I receive updates about the conference?

General conference updates are communicated twice monthly. You can register to receive updates here.

  1. Who is the conference for?
