(replies will go to organizer)

On July 7 - 11, the North American vegetarian Society will bring together some of the very best speakers, workshops, food, social activities, and more. It will take place at the Conference Center at Pitt-Johnstown, on the picturesque campus of the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown, PA. The campus is a 650-acre mountaintop wildlife preserve with 40 acres of hiking trails. Registrants may attend the entire 5-day conference, or opt for the weekend only. The toughest part for most attendees is trying to decide which of the classes to attend. Daytime schedules normally offer at least 6-7 options.

Conference fees cover the entire educational program, including classes, lectures, workshops and discussions, as well as films, entertainment, and use of certain athletic areas. Also covered are vegan meals, with ample variety to suit most any preference, and on-campus housing which includes a twin bed, linen and towels. Hope to see you there!
