About This Event

Considering Attending Your First ARELLO Conference?
The Membership Committee is delighted to extend an opportunity for first-time non-members to participate in the 2024 Mid-Year Conference. We offer a stipend covering registration and a two-night stay at the Royal Sonesta Hotel. We kindly request that all stipend recipients participate in the ARELLO Mentorship Program. 

For further information and to explore this opportunity, please get in touch with Calleigh Smith, Membership Committee Staff Liaison.

This Year's Offsite/Welcome Reception is at Mardi Gras World! 
Unless you are specifically coming to New Orleans for Mardi Gras, Mardi Gras World can give you a firsthand experience of the famous Big Easy holiday. Blain Kern's attraction affords you a behind-the-scenes look at the warehouses where the parade floats are conceived and constructed. Take a guided tour for true inside info into the technology and artistry behind floats like the King Kong and Bacchasaurus. Mardi Gras World hosts conventions, birthday parties, concerts and occasionally weddings. If your group is large enough, you can enroll in their Mardi Gras mask-making classes. This place is selfie heaven so have fun.
