Friday, October 8 thru Sunday, October 10, 2021
Dear Women in Recovery,
We are so excited to welcome you back for the 16th annual Michigan Women’s Conference.
Please join us October 8 – 10, 2021 at Garland Resort in Lewiston, MI. Garland is a comfortable facility in a beautiful location and has hosted our conference since 2015.
We are planning a wonderful conference based on the theme of “Faith over Fear“. As in the past, the conference will include panels which address a variety of recovery topics. We will have speaker meetings Friday and Saturday nights and Sunday morning. We are planning fun activities and entertainment and there is always an option for you to just relax and enjoy the beauty of the resort property.
We are planning to have a hospitality suite, so please bring a snack to share. At this point we don’t know if there will be any guidance or restrictions due to COVID but we will try to update you as we get closer to the conference dates. As in the past we will have a book swap area available so feel free to bring recovery-themed books to share with others.
The registration fee is $65 if received by September 10th and $75 after that date. Your registration is not considered complete until we receive your payment. As in the past, due to contractual commitments, refunds will not be given, unless the conference is cancelled. Saturday night dinner will be included in your registration. The meal may be plated or a buffet, depending on any COVID requirements or restrictions.
Souvenirs must be pre-ordered and paid for by September 10th to guarantee delivery at the conference. We will take orders for souvenirs at the conference, but they will be subject to a processing fee and postage.
You must contact Garland Resort directly to make your lodging reservations at the MWC rate. Room rates vary based on type, size and location of the room. The rates range from $124 per night to $259 per night. Please check with the resort for more specific information about the types and occupancy of rooms. These are just the base nightly room rates and the final amount you pay will be higher due to applicable state sales and use tax, or convention and visitor bureau assessments. Also, the rates do not include the breakfast cost of $12.50 per person per night. This is a mandatory addition to the room cost and will help us meet our contractual requirements with the resort.
Your lodging reservations must be made on or before September 13th, 2021. You can call the reservation department during regular business hours at 989-786-1425 or 877-442-7526. The resort will collect a $100 deposit per unit when you make your reservation.
If you have any special dietary restrictions or requests, please contact Garland directly to discuss your specific needs.
