DISCOUNTED HOTEL RESERVATIONS:

SPEAKERS AND SCHEDULE:
The conference will be held all day on Friday October 19 and Saturday October 20 from about 8am-6pm, with an optional meet-and-greet reception on Thursday evening October 18.
Our overall goal remains to create an affordable convention that will bring you the very best in current thinking, coping, management, new knowledge, and practical sessions with useful advice and support.
FOOD AND CONVENTION ENVIRONMENT:
Many people attending this event have specific sounds or movements that trigger their misophonia reactions. We want this to be a safe and comfortable environment for all participants. Therefore, NO FOOD, DRINK, OR GUM will be allowed into the meeting rooms. We know that there are many different types of triggers, and we do our absolute best to keep the convention environment as trigger-free as possible. However, we know it is impossible to eliminate all triggers for all sufferers, so we always ask that everyone does their best to be mindful and respectful of each other, and responsive to other people’s needs.
There will be provided snack breaks served outside of the meeting rooms, allowing for enough space to separate from others. We always try to plan the types of snacks carefully. There is a lunch break scheduled into each day where you will be on your own to get whatever you want for lunch.
THURSDAY EVENING WELCOME:
Join us for a Welcome/Meet & Greet on Thursday evening October 18. We will be in a private area just for our group. Children and youth welcome! Come get to know others in the misophonia community!
AUCTION, DONATIONS, AND SCHOLARSHIP FUND:
Please contact us if you have any items that you would like to donate for this year’s auction. We are always looking for ways to offer help and scholarships to allow people to attend our conventions who would not be able to afford it otherwise. If expense is the only thing getting in the way of you attending this event, please contact us and ask about our scholarship fund.
As a Non-Profit Organization, your thoughtful donations of any size are greatly appreciated and always go directly towards making an impact on the Misophonia community. Thank you!
