After careful consideration, we are charging a non-refundable fee to register and attend TMC. We have been fortunate enough in the past that many people have given donations to help cover expenses as we have needed them to be covered. This year, we are looking at having expenses beyond the range of what donations have covered previously. Augsburg has agreed to host us for a fee that will be at least partially waived by the number of people who stay in their dorm facilities. The bottom line for us is that for our fees from Augsburg to be completely waived, we need to have 105 people stay in their dorms. If that doesn't happen, we are responsible for the fees.
So that we have the money to cover expenses, we will charge a $20 non-refundable registration fee. To validate your registration, we will need to receive the fee within a week of registration. If this is not possible (i.e. school check), we will need to receive notification of your intended method of payment. Payment information will be found inside the registration document. Please understand that if circumstances change and you are no longer able to attend TMC16, you forfeit your spot and your $20. If you have any questions, please contact Lisa Henry.

What is TMC?
TMC stands for Twitter Math Camp and it is a conference run by teachers, for teachers. The participants, speakers and organizers communicate year round via Twitter, blogs and other social media. This 4-day conference in July is a chance for everyone to get together for face to face interactions.
The Wiki site is filled with information people have presented and produced during past conferences. There is also an archive of blog posts people wrote after attending TMC. You can see there is a wealth of information that people bring to the conference, and even more ideas are sparked that continue in conversations and projects beyond the weekend. If you want to see what happens, check out the 2015 Shutterfly account filled with amazing photos! Another way we continue sharing throughout the year is through a Pinterest account ready to pin all subjects.
