What Nexus Rgistration Includes
Each year, we work hard to keep conference affordable for parish and diocesan staff. Below is a description of what your registration fee will cover.
Workshops & Training
We’ve created workshops with specific staff roles in mind. Whether you’re a bookkeeper, business manager, events coordinator, minister, diocesan-parish liaison… (you get the idea!) or many of the above, there will be great workshops designed just for you. In 2017, there were 90+ unique workshops to choose from, and classes cover a wide range of topics represented by these tracks:
- Diocesan Focused
- Hands-On Training*
- Parish Best Practices
- Parish Software Applications
*Hands-on Training classes cost $35 per session, but they offer great value! In a 2-hour session, attendees receive training from ParishSOFT staff. Class size is limited, and trainees use ParishSOFT laptops for hands-on product training.
Each year, we carefully choose keynotes with thought-provoking and inspiring presentations. Stay tuned to find out who the 2017 keynotes will be! You can also take a look at some of our past speakers
At the users' conference, we celebrate Mass daily, as we focus each day on Christ and the sacraments. Over the years, we've enjoyed many beautiful moments together as we hear the Word and share in the Eucharist with one another.

Other Expenses to Consider

(DTW). Make sure to plan your route from the airport to the hotel.
- Hotel - We’ve negotiated a special rate for our attendees of $150 a night at the conference hotel, Ann Arbor Marriott Hotel at Eagle Crest in Ypsilanti, Michigan.
