A select number of rooms have been reserved at a special rate starting at $144 per night. Rooms will be available at this rate through Wednesday, Sept. 16 (or until they are sold out). Ask for the "FCS" conference rate when you contact the hotel at 314-269-5900, or click here to register online. Please note: We suggest reserving your hotel room early as Major League Baseball playoff games are scheduled for Oct. 7-8. The Cardinals may be playing in St. Louis those evenings and, if so, there is a strong likelihood that all downtown hotels will sell out.

This exclusive event will provide insights and lessons on how organizations can begin, improve or expand a 529 or CSA program. Leading experts from around the U.S. will discuss the latest research, program, funding and account-structure ideas in this rapidly growing field.

Space is limited so early registration is recommended, as previous Center for Household Financial Stability events have sold out quickly. Registration fees include breakfast, lunch and two dinner receptions.

The registration deadline is Wednesday, Sept. 30. Cost for attendance is $75 per participant. An early-bird discount is available, but you must register by Friday, Sept. 4, to take advantage of this $25 savings. A student discount is also available; however, there are limited student spots available.

For more information, including questions related to student registration, please call Lisa Locke at 502-568-9292 or email
