Enter Our Conference Contest: Get Me to Chicago!

Denise
We'd love for you to join us for our Third Annual National Caregiving Conference which happens November 8 - 11 in Chicago. We've got a contest beginning August 22 that will help offset the costs of attending our conference.

Enter our contest for a chance to win one of four $1,000 cash prizes to help with your travel, your hotel and respite care costs to attend the Third Annual National Caregiving Conference. Anyone currently helping or caring for a family member or friend can enter our contest, which begins on August 22 and ends August 25. We’ll choose four random winners on August 26 to receive the cash prizes. In addition, our winners will receive a free registration and meal package to our conference. If you win, you'll receive your cash when you attend our Third Annual National Caregiving Conference in Chicago. (In the past, we've sent money to conference contest winners prior to the conference and then they haven't attended our conference. Our new policy is to award the cash prizes to our winners at the conference.)

Our conference will begin with an evening reception on November 8 and will conclude on November 11. Our conference will take place at the Chicago Marriott O’Hare, conveniently located minutes from O’Hare and a subway ride from downtown Chicago. Our agenda features family caregivers and former family caregivers sharing their experiences, insights and solutions.

Here are the details about our contest, which begins August 22 and ends August 25:

  1. Beginning August 22, post a comment (scroll down for our comments section) about why you want to attend our Third Annual National Caregiving Conference. You can post a comment once a day. Each comment counts as one entry. If you post a comment once a day for four days, you'll have four entries in our contest. (If this is your first time commenting on Caregiving.com, your comment will need to be approved, which does not affect your contest entry. I will approve your comment as soon as possible.)

  2. Anyone currently helping or caring for a family member or friend can enter our contest.

  3. If you win, you will receive your cash prize of $1,000 when you attend our Third Annual National Caregiving Conference in Chicago. In addition, our winners will receive a free registration and meal package to our conference.


Good luck to all!

Hotel Update
