All Inclusive Retreat Fee
Base registration fee is $3450 and covers all expenses for two persons and includes: 3 nights at the Clift; all meals, beverage and snacks; Monday afternoon group excursion; entertainment; transportation for group events, meeting room charges and other expenses as outlined in FAQ. SERGE attendees who reside in San Francisco may opt out of staying at the Clift and pay a local resident rate of $2,545 which does not include the three nights hotel lodging.
Registration fees are estimated based on current projection of all expenses, some of which are not yet in finalized contracts and are thus subject to change. We will be taking signups for the full amount of the estimated registration fees and should any supplements be needed, we will notify registrants as soon as final expenses are known. As with our prior SERGE’s, full disclosure of all expenses will be provided to the group – our goal is to break even.
