The MJ Housing Forum is an educational experience specifically developed for inter/national sorority housing entities – and the only one of its kind. The Housing Forum is an opportunity to bring together both staff and volunteers of the women’s fraternal organizations to discuss the challenges and opportunities specific to sorority housing. We hope you’ll join us this year for our fourteenth MJ Housing Forum!
We invite all NPC organizations to participate, but we only cover the costs and expenses for MJ clients. Potential clients are encouraged to attend at a rate of $500 per person to cover programming and meal costs, in addition to covering their own travel expenses.
Due to the increased support from our sponsors, we are able to waive the additional attendee charge for MJ clients! Just to clarify, MJ covers the cost for travel, meals, programming, and lodging for three attendees per client. In the past, we have had a nominal additional fee for additional attendees over the three MJ covers. This year, that additional programming/meal fee is waived, in hopes of incentivizing our clients to bring more individuals responsible for the housing and employment areas of your operations. MJ covers the cost for three attendees to attend the Housing Forum for each MJ client. We encourage you to consider recruiting a fourth individual from your organization to come because MJ has already covered the cost of two hotel rooms, so the only expenses would be that individual’s travel costs.
January 20, 2018: Topic submission deadline
February 5, 2018: Registration and hotel reservation deadline
March 15, 2018: All expenses must be submitted prior to March 15, 2018 in order to be reimbursed (more information in registration form)
We will also have a separate tract for more veteran attendees. Please email Sara Sterley with your suggestions or to volunteer to lead a session.
The hotel does not offer shuttle service, but in addition to taxis or Uber options from the airport, Carey makes it easy to reserve transportation to and from the airport. Refer to the airport’s website for additional information on rental cars, shared ride services, and taxis.
Make the most out of your Forum
The MJ Housing Forum is the premier gathering for the property leadership of the women’s fraternities and sororities. Additionally, we have many business partners in attendance who stand ready to help you take your organization’s housing to the next level. Here is the current list of attendees and business partners if you want to make any appointments ahead of time.
We encourage you to come prepared to share, ask questions, and make new friends!
- In hopes of creating a simpler registration process, we are asking that each participant register for their own hotel room via the Marriott reservation system (directions are included during registration). Following the event, we will send you an expense report to complete, and we will reimburse each organization for two hotel rooms for Thursday and Friday evenings. Stay tuned for additional details on this process as the event gets closer.
- There is a section to upload your air travel documentation during the registration process, so you may want to wait to register until you have made your travel arrangements to avoid having to log in to the registration site more than once.
- Programming will begin at 3:30PM on Thursday, February 22nd, and we will finish by noon on Saturday, February 24th. We are hoping that this will allow attendees to have more concentrated networking time together and enable attendees to be home for more of the weekend. The GHA session typically takes place Thursday afternoon beginning at noon.
- Because of the increasing cost of travel over the last several years, we are no longer able to cover the cost of transportation to and from the airport. Please refer to our transportation recommendations above.
