The IFC is pleased to announce the upcoming 2011 Symposium!

Mark your calendars and pack your bags, for we are going to Phoenix! It is time to make your travel plans to attend the informational and social ferret event of the year at the Fiesta Resort and Conference Center in Tempe, AZ! Our newly reorganized team has obtained a wonderful room rate at a comfortable, relaxing and well located resort with numerous amenities and put together a panel of speakers - some new and some returning favorites - that are sure to make this some of your most pleasant days of the year! Not to mention that there will be the fun little extras that always make the trips special.

We have taken extra efforts to reduce costs as much as possible and are providing some additional workshops for both shelter operators and the general attendee. More information will follow and, as usual, discussion about the symposium and room mates will be available on the yahoo list at http://pets.groups.yahoo.com/group/ferret_symposium/. Speakers will be announced and updated on the IFC website at ferretcongress.org as they are confirmed.
