How Close Are You to Salt Lake City?

How Close Are You to Salt Lake City?


We move Users' Conference around the country each year--our travels have taken us to the East Coast (Baltimore, MD), West Coast (Ananheim, CA), Mid-west (Dearborn, MI), and South East (St. Petersburg, FL). This year, we're taking a trip into the mountains--We'll be in the beautiful Salt Lake City, Utah!

By changing locations, we hope to get pretty close to lots of our users. Conference is always worth the travel, but for those of you in the nearer regions, we especially encourage you to attend while we're close by. (You can save on airfare and other travel expenses!)

Two Ways to Pay

If you haven’t already registered for conference, keep in mind that when you do, you’ll have two payment options. (For those of you who are selecting workshops, Hands-on Training payment works the same way!)

Pay by Credit (or Debit) Card

After you’ve submitted your registration form, you’ll come to the payment page. To pay by credit card, select the button by the Visa and MasterCard icons.


Simply fill out your card information and billing address and include an email address to have the receipt sent to. Once you click the “Submit Payment” button, your payment should process.

Pay by Electronic Check

Another option is to pay by electronic check. To pay by eCheck, select the button by the eCheck icon.


You’ll need your routing number and your account number (both of these can be found on the front of your checks). You'll also select an account type--you can have the payment come out of a checking or savings account.


Lastly, enter an email address to have your receipt sent to and click “Submit Payment.”

Note: If you have trouble with one of our payment forms, you can also submit payment here. For "Invoice Amount", enter the total that you see on the payment summary page of your conference registration, and in the “Additional Information” field, let us know that your payment is for Users’ Conference and be sure to mention the name(s) associated with the registration(s) you’re paying for.

If you have trouble submitting payment or have any questions, please let us know!

Parish Priests Attend Free!

It's awesome when priests and parish staff are able to learn alongside each other... and that's why we're carrying on our tradition of offering each parish a free priest registration when coupled with at least one staff registration from the same parish.

What's in it for your priest?

  • Great workshops! We have a few Priest Track classes geared specifically for priests, plus many other classes that will interest him.
  • A new perspective. If you've ever thought, Father just doesn't get it, you'll want to bring him to conference where he can better understand what staff really do and the tools they needs to be successful!
  • Inspiring keynotes. Everyone can learn something from and be inspired by the Catholic speakers who will be presenting this year's keynotes.
  • Time with other priests. It never hurts to spend a little quality time with others--especially other Catholics who face the same questions.

Register soon! And be sure to get your priest on board!
