Want to get in a day early to settle in?  Since we are now in a hotel conference setting your registration will direct you to enter your arrival day and the number of nights you will be staying.  NOTE: Your arrival day will be charged to you, even if you do not arrive until the next day. If you need to change your arrival day after registration, you must notify the registrar at least 7 days prior to the conference.

Housing

Prices for accommodations assume a double occupancy room with a roommate.  Single accommodations or additional occupants in the room will change the cost to you and will be reflected in your registration.

All accommodations are air conditioned; linens are included at no extra cost. Wi-fi is also offered in all rooms.  We will do our best to house you near and with the women you indicate on your registration form.  

Dining: Meals will be served in the general session area of the conference, and will be a buffet style.  Gluten free, vegetarian and other specialty needs will be accommodated as best we can.  Each room does have a refrigerator and microwave so please feel free to bring foods you may need during your stay that we cannot provide.

Saturday Evening Martial Arts Performance, Bazaar and Dance / Social 

A beloved part of NWMAF’s annual conference is the entertainment, shopping and socializing that happens on Saturday evening. This year, the fun will begin with Art with Heart, a thrilling performance by conference trainers, senior practitioners and interested groups from attending schools. It is free to all PeaceWorks conference attendees, including those who are registered for Super Saturday only.

After the show, NWMAF member vendors will be selling a wide array of martial arts and self-defense related books, dvds, practice weapons, clothing, art and much, much more at a bazaar in the lobby outside the theater while the dance / social is going on in an adjacent space.


Reserving Vendor Tables for the Bazaar 

If you wish to be a vendor, you may reserve a table when you register.
