The cost of the conference is $350 for PEP-RJ members and $450 for non-members. The cost includes meals, speakers, supplies, transportation during the conference and evening activities. The cost does not include transportation from the airport on Sunday, but will include transportation to either the URJ Biennial or local airports at the close of the conference.

Hotel accommodations are available at the Residence Inn Chicago Downtown/Magnificent Mile (201 E Walton Pl, Chicago, IL 60611; phone 312.943.9800). PEP-RJ conference attendees are encouraged to contact them directly to reserve your room. Please reference the PEP-RJ room block for a special rate of $93 per night for a studio room. We did not include rooms with 2 beds in our block as the per person rate was the same as a studio. However, studio rooms have a sofa bed so sharing is possible. Breakfast and WiFi are included. Please note that the booking deadline is Friday, October 25.



Conference scholarships are available. Please contact PEP-RJ President Bryan Bierman at for more information.
