Becoming 2016 | August 5th-6th

Mark your Calendar for Becoming 2016.

Hosted once again in the beautiful mountains of Asheville, NC on Friday and Saturday, August 5th-6th, 2016.

We are so excited to invite you to join us for the fifth annual Becoming Conference.

Becoming 2016 is a weekend designed to encourage and inspire women to live intentionally by becoming more creative, purposeful, and frugal. As women, many of us desire to be more intentional with our time and financial resources; more intentional with our family and homes, but aren’t sure how to make that happen.

As we gather from all walks of life, we will tackle some of those day to day issues that typically seem mundane and give you a sense of magic. Our desire is that you will leave, not only refreshed, but encouraged, empowered, and motivated with the practical and tangible ideas you have received.

From personal finance, meal planning, hospitality, home decor, trash to treasure, and more, Becoming 2016 will revolutionize the way we think, not just about our finances, but our homes.

If it comes to creating, repurposing or being intentional with our money, time and energy, we want to cover it.

As we are bring together a number of talented bloggers, all who are passionate in their areas of expertise, they will instruct and inspire you on a number of topics.

With both large groups and smaller, interactive workshops, we want to ensure that you leave empowered with tools to enrich your life.

Hosted once again in the beautiful mountains of Asheville, NC on Friday and Saturday, August 5th-6th, 2016, we will be at the Lake Junaluska Conference and retreat center.

We will be adding the workshops and session descriptions soon.

Since managing money wisely is so important to both of us, we have kept the cost of the conference as low as you will find anywhere.

Ticket reservations are done differently than in past years. You will purchase a separate Becoming Conference ticket ($52) which includes all of the break out sessions, special activities and the Ladies Night In, which can be done through this link, and then your choice of lodging and meals will need to be reserved directly through Lake Junaluska’s reservation center

 

Please see the Registration Details and break down of conference prices before you call to register. This is just an overview.

The mountains of NC are calling you. Come be a part of something new, unique and exciting. Join a room full of women whose desire is to Become More.

Turn off the TV, grab some girlfriends, and escape on a breathtaking getaway to Asheville’s Blue Ridge Mountains.

We are so excited to meet you, and enjoy this weekend with you.

Becoming More,

Jenny, from Southern Savers and Jen, from Balancing Beauty and Bedlam

Registration Details and Breakdown of Prices

We look forward to seeing many of you this August 5th and August 6th, 2016.

Tickets are on sale now, but please note that registration process has changed from previous years. Two separate reservations will be needed this year. We are selling the individual Becoming Conference tickets through this Eventbrite link here.  All Housing and meals are done through Lake Junalaska’s reservation desk.

** The Becoming Ticket includes all Conference Breakout Sessions, as well as our Friday evening Ladies Night In activities. Lodging and sit down meals are not included and are purchased separately through the conference center.

You will reserve your lodging (first come, first serve) and then purchase meal tickets upon lodging check-in. There is a large assortment of lodging choices  (see here) with everything from camp style bunk beds (least expensive), hotel rooms and even apartments to accommodate more people.

All of our sessions will be held in Shackford Hall, so for those who want to stay close to our sessions, Sunnyside Lodge and Mountainview lodge housing share the same parking lot. The campus is beautiful and a trolly is available at all times throughout your stay, so choosing higher end accommodations elsewhere on the property will not be a problem.

For those planning their travels, conference registration begins at 2:00 on Friday the 5th, and you can check into your room starting at 3:00 pm. If you are attending any optional workshops, you will be able to register as early as noon,  so you are ready for your workshops.

Friday evening begins with dinner, at 5:30. Our main session begins at 6:30 pm and once that concludes, we will have one breakout session Friday night before the girls night in event.  The fun runs solid through Saturday until 6:00 pm.

**If you do not know all of your roommates yet, you can still reserve a room, just make sure you call back and add your roommates as you know them.

Please note that prices reflect one person paying for the entire room, but the more friends that share a room, the less the conference total will be. It will be at your discretion on how you want to share accommodations.

You are able to book an additional evening through the conference center if you want to come early or stay over till Sunday.

Prices vary based on the room type you request and how many are in a room (remember the more the merrier).

You may check out the different accommodations here.

To Register for your rooms: 

-Call the reservations team at 800-222-4930 to make a reservation by phone. You can see the accommodations at   www.lakejunaluska.com. The call center is open from 8 am – 5 pm, Monday through Friday. Mention that you are coming to the Becoming Women’s Conference and our conference code is 7699. You will be asked to place a deposit equal to the first night’s rental to hold your room.

We can’t wait to see many of you this August. We have a host of really fun things planned. Feel free to ask any questions in the comments and we will get back to you.
