Coffman Union and the Campus Club

This year we are back at the University of Minnesota for our conference, on the 4th floor of the Coffman Student Union. Centrally located on campus and directly next to a light rail stop and parking ramps, with restaurants, hotels and coffee shops nearby.

Once you get to Coffman Union, take the elevators to the 4th floor where you'll find registration and the large and beautiful dining room where we'll meet. The 4th floor is known as the "Campus Club", with windows and outdoor decks overlooking the campus.

Registration, lunch, sponsors and breakout sessions can all be found on the 4th floor!
