EARN/PSN conference
All TFOC members are invited to attend the EARN (Economic and Research Analysis Network) and PSN (Progressive States Network) conference, which will begin Monday at dinner time, just as the TFOC conference wraps up, and end Wednesday, December 8th at 2:00pm. EARN/PSN is generously giving TFOC members a 33% discount, making our registration fee $250 (the normal fee is $375). The TFOC will cover an additional $100 for one TFOC member’s registration fee, which means your organization will be responsible for the remaining $150.
Registration information will be sent via email once we gain a sense of how many TFOC members plan on attending.
