Frequently Asked Questions and Other Important Information

Who is presenting at this year's conference? Can I see the Agenda and Workshop Lineup?

We’re very excited to have Lavon Morris-Grant as our Keynote Speaker for the 2014 Annual Conference! Ms. Morris-Grant is a survivor of domestic violence, national/international speaker, tireless advocate for survivors and author of two books, Whom Shall I Fear: A Spiritual Journey of a Battered Woman and Who Will Speak For My Children: Healing Through The Trauma (both of which will be available for purchase at the conference). In addition to her keynote address, Ms. Morris-Grant will be presenting a two-hour workshop entitled “Mama's Boys: Raising Boys to Men Who Witness Domestic Violence.” To learn more about Ms. Morris-Grant and her work, please visit her website.

Unless you are a confirmed workshop presenter, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR BOOKING YOUR OWN LODGING ACCOMMODATIONS, whether you plan to stay at the Sunriver Resort (OCADSV block rate: $89/night + 8% tax; their contact info is above) or elsewhere (group rental cabins, etc).

How much does it cost to attend? Are there registration fees?

Coalition Member Programs from Regions 1-7 are eligible for scholarships to defray the cost of attendance for up to two (2) of their staff members (more information on scholarships); additional staff members and all attendees not affiliated with a Member Program are subject to registration fees.

Current prices can be found on the Web Registration Form.

Please make all checks payable to "OCADSV" and mail all payment to:

I've heard that Coalition Member Programs are eligible for scholarships. What do they cover?

Each Oregon Coalition Member Program in Regions 1-7 is eligible for a scholarship, which will include:
  1. Lodging reimbursement covering three nights' stay (Sunday 6/15 through Tuesday 6/17, departing Wednesday 6/18) in one room at the Sunriver Resort ($89/night + tax);
    • Even if you are attending the conference under a scholarship, you are responsible for arranging your own travel and lodging accommodations! Call the Sunriver Resort NOW at 1-800-547-3922 to reserve your hotel room (tell them you're attending the OCADSV Annual Conference to get our special block rates of $89/night + 8% tax).
    • Member Programs are not required to stay at the Sunriver Resort. You may use lodging reimbursement funds to defray the cost of private cabin rentals or other accommodations in and around Sunriver. However, anyone opting to stay off-site will be responsible for travel arrangements between their private accommodations and the Conference site; and
    • Whether attendees opt for lodging at Sunriver Resort or another off-site location, lodging reimbursement from OCADSV will not exceed $89/night + tax.
  2. Mileage reimbursement (roundtrip) in one vehicle between the Member Program's office and Sunriver Resort ($0.56/mile); and
  3. Up to two scholarship (no-cost) registration spots, which includes breakfast, snacks & lunch.
Unfortunately, due to budget constraints, we are not able to offer scholarships to Individual or Affiliate Members this year.

I am a confirmed workshop presenter for the 2014 Annual Conference. What do I need to know?

Confirmed Workshop Presenters will receive compensation that may include monetary honoraria, one day of no-cost conference registration (breakfast, lunch and workshop attendance) and/or one night of lodging at Sunriver Resort (see your contract issued by Dian Hilliard, our Conference Coordinator for specifics).

Presenters who wish to attend the rest of the conference need to register using the WORKSHOP PRESENTER REGISTRATION button below, then inform Dian Hilliard of their plans immediately so that their hotel reservations can be modified accordingly. Workshop Presenters and/or their organizations will be financially responsible for the remainder of each Workshop Presenters' registration and lodging costs, unless other arrangements have been made with Coalition staff.

We recommend that Presenters who are affiliated with a Coalition Member Program and wish to attend the entire conference pay for the remainder of their stay, instead of using their organization's designated scholarship "slots". This simplifies the accounting process and hopefully avoids us having to reconcile workshop presenter compensation, scholarship reimbursement, and registration fees on a single reimbursement check. If this is not feasible or you don't understand what this means, please contact Jonathan Gates, Social Media & Events Coordinator.

I am a Coalition Individual or Affiliate Member. Am I eligible for any discounts or scholarships?

Individual and Affiliate Members are eligible for discounted registration rates (scholarships are not available to Individual/Affiliate members at this time). Click one of the REGISTER buttons below and select the Individual/Affiliate Member registration option on the registration form.

Will child care be offered at this year's conference?

We are pleased to offer no-cost childcare (provided by Sunriver Resort; ages 5-12 ONLY) for all attendees! Please indicate on your registration form whether you will need child care.

Is there a paper registration form available?

Yes. For those who are unable to use the online application or who don't want to pay by credit card, you can download a printable registration form using the DOWNLOAD THE PAPER FORM button below. (NOTE: Your computer will need Adobe Reader or another reputable PDF reader program installed to open this form.)
