Hand out the Group Registration Flyer – to friends, family, parish groups, at work, at school.
Mother’s Day & Birthdays – Think of men that may want to give the gift of the conference as a Mother’s Day or Birthday gift to the women in their lives. If the man wants this to be a surprise, tell him to put the woman’s contact information except HIS EMAIL so the tickets are sent to them. Surprise! After he gifts her, he should tell us her email address so that we can update that. (Pertinent conference information and updates are provided to attendees via email.)
