It’s almost here!!  We are now 6 days away from Becoming Registration opening.

Starting at 9 am July 10th you can call and get registered for the Becoming 2012 Conference.

This is a conference for Women that covers everything you could want to become better at, from personal finance and saving money to home decor and trash to treasure creations.  This year for Becoming 2012 we’ve decided to broaden our horizons by adding photography, hair, make up and fashion, as well as an optional hands on Furniture Painting and Crafting Workshop that will take place on Friday afternoon (at an additional cost — see below).

Design ideas during a workshop last year.

Becoming 2012 takes place Sept. 21 – 22 in Asheville, NC. Since we are all about being intentional with our finances, the cost for the entire conference is still probably the cheapest weekend away conference you can find!

Rates will vary based on how many people are in your room, so check out the rates below and start finding a roommate!!

These rates include your room, all meals and the conference!!

If you are local or want to stay off campus, the “local rate” is $52.50.  This includes lunch on Saturday, you will be on your own for dinner and breakfast.

To Register:

Starting at 9 am Tuesday July 10th, call 1-800-588-7222. 

  • You will need the name, mailing address and email address of everyone staying in your room.
  • You will be asked to pay a $50 deposit per person at registration.  You are more than welcome to pay the full amount per person, which will speed up check-in that day.
  • Local Rate attendees still need to register to reserve your ticket.

**If you do not know all of your roommates yet, you can still reserve a room, just make sure you call back and add your roommates as you know them.  Tickets can still sell out though, so try to have everyone on board early!!**

To get more information and to register for the hands on painting workshop head over here.  Tickets will also open at 9 am Tuesday July 10th.  There are only 50 spots available!

Please know that while Becoming is a conference for anyone, it is being held at a beautiful Christian retreat center.  They have rules that we must honor:

No alcohol on campus
Men & women may only share a room if they are married

Room Details:

Please know that accommodations vary greatly. We want you to be completely aware of the rooms you are receiving.  You may view the choices at the Ridgecrest site here to see all the specifics.

The Royal Gorge Youth rooms are the only accommodations that sleep 7 or 8, and perfect for those that want an incredibly frugal weekend with a bunch of girls. They house 3 sets of bunk beds and one queen bed, so no bells and whistles, but lots of fun with a great porch and rockers.

We will keep you hopping on Saturday, so many people chose to make this a full weekend. We have received an amazing price with Ridgecrest for extra evenings. You may choose to stay Thursday and/or Saturday evening at an additional cost of only $59/per room.

Room spaces are limited, so please know that you may not receive your first choice, and may need to be flexible.

As you browse the choices, the Deluxe Per Person Conference Rate are for the MOUNTAIN LAUREL & RHODODENDRON accommodations.

Standard Per Person Conference rates are for rooms in PRITCHELL, MAPLE, ROYAL GORGE APARTMENTS, ROYAL GORGE YOUTH, WALNUT.
