Please Help Your Fellow SERFA Conference Attendees

For its 12th year, the SERFA (South East Regional Folk Alliance) conference is moving to an exciting new location – The Chattanoogan Hotel in Chattanooga – for May 15-19, 2019. Besides allowing for expansive growth, the SERFA board selected The Chattanoogan because it provides almost everything attendees have been requesting.

These upgrades, amenities, and services come with a cost, which will be reflected most in the cost of meals, both due to greatly improved quality and service and the hefty meal minimum we have to meet in return for so much meeting space.

Communal meals are one of the best loved aspects of the SERFA Conference. For many in our SERFA community, the cost of meals will be a challenge. We feel a mandate to make this cost for attendees as low as possible, allowing maximum participation while including as few of the meals as possible within the base registration package, so that folks can choose which communal meals to enjoy.

This is where you could help. Each $1000 we raise will reduce the cost of meals included in registration by $5 per person. Our goal, which as few as 60 people can help us achieve, is to raise $20,000 to reduce the cost by $100 per attendee. Please use the Donate button on this page to help us reach our goal.

We are calling on those who can afford it to help those who cannot. We thank you!
