This is the second year that the Spartanburg Educators for Empowered Communities (SEEC) will host the Convergence in Upstate South Carolina, and it is the first year that SEEC will host the Convergence entirely in its home community of Glendale.
Costs: The Convergence funds itself from what the participants can pay on a sliding scale. This year, the funding scale will be from $40.00 to $60.00. We will collect your contribution at Friday evening’s registration. Costs will go towards: food for Friday night, all day Saturday, and Sunday morning and afternoon; gas expenses for local coordinators during the Convergence; office/workshop supplies for the weekend; and honorariums for guest speakers, workshop facilitators, and community hosts. Please bring extra money if you intend to purchase alcohol, cigarettes, or anything outside of basic meals.
Also, please do not let costs prohibit you from being a part of the Convergence. If you have any concerns about paying, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org so that something can be worked out.
