Registration fees will increase on October 1, so remember to register before that time. 

A reminder that the EMLF room block at the Hyatt Regency will be held through September 29 or sell out.  October is a busy month in Lexington, with thoroughbred racing at Keeneland, October 2-24.  Be sure to make your reservations soon.  Call 1.800.233.1234 and ask for the EMLF room block to get the reduced rate.

The EMLF committees will meet for a working lunch on Thursday, October 22, in the Hyatt Suites at the Hyatt Hotel in Lexington.  The lunch break is from 11:45 – 1:30 p.m.

All of the committees will be meeting at separate tables and sharing a buffet, as was done in 2014. If you are a committee member and are registered for the Conference, we will plan on your attendance.
