MEALS

During your online registration all conference attendees will have a chance to sign-up for meals. If you plan on eating on campus at conference sponsored meals there are basically two options:

Option One: Eight meals on campus (starting dinner 8/3 - ending breakfast 8/6
[NOTE: you will have a chance to add lunch on 8/6 during your online registration if you plan on eating on-campus before your plane departs)
OR
Option Two: Five meals on campus (no breakfasts; starting dinner 8/3 - ending dinner 8/5 = $87.00)
[NOTE: you will have a chance to add a lunch on 8/6 during your online registration if you plan on eating on-campus before your plane departs)

The second option (no breakfasts) is especially suited for those staying in the Red Lion River Inn who have a complimentary breakfast provided by the hotel. There will be no option to sign-up for any of these meals past the registration closing point--no on-site payments will be available.

If you prefer not to sign up for meals at registration there are a number of off-campus eateries either in walking distance of the university or, if you have a car, in downtown Spokane:
