2008 MG Conference Hotel Registration and Silent Auction

Posted by Ron Wolford -

Planning is in full swing for conference 2008 to be held Sept 11-13 at the Westin in Lombard. We have a great line-up of speakers and tours. The conference website is up and running at (


Hotel registration is open and may be done by phone at 888-627-9031 or online at the conference website. We were very fortunate to secure a room rate of $109- such a deal for a spectacular new Westin! Please book a room early as the rate only holds till August 20. We MUST fill our room block in order to keep our conference registration rates low.

Silent Auction:

We are in need of donations for the 5th annual silent auction. We would suggest items such as plant material, garden tools, artwork, jewelry, garden sculpture, garden gifts, books, birdhouses etc. Use your imagination! The committee would prefer items rather than gift certificates. These items may either be sent to the DuPage county office or brought directly to the conference in Lombard. However, please contact the DuPage county office at 630-955-1123 and let them know what you are donating. We are requesting that you include the name of the donor, your county and an estimated value with your donation.


Registration will open on June 15th for Master Gardeners. All registrations will be done online this year.
