2020 Table Rock Regional Roundup

Welcome to the 2020 Table Rock Regional Roundup

Due to the coronavirus pandemic and concern for the safety and health of our attendees, we canceled the in-person conference at the Big Cedar Lodge.  The good news is that we are offering a slightly consolidated program to take place on Saturday, September 26, 2020.  The planning committee has completed the details, and you will be able to attend on line via computer or mobile device. 
Once you register, we will send you instructions and a web-link to join the webinar broadcast.  This log-in will be unique to you, so don't share it with somebody else.  You'll be able to log-in and log-out throughout the conference if you need to step away from your computer.
The registration fee is $50 for all attendees regardless of your membership status.
In the meantime, we greatly appreciate your interest in the Table Rock Regional Roundup.  We expect to be back at the Big Cedar Lodge again next year!  Mark the dates -- September 23 - 25, 2021.
