View the 2012 GEMS Video recap


This conference will start at 9 a.m. on Saturday, November 3, 2012 at Marian University with an opening session followed by two workshops, a very special luncheon and an afternoon workshop. The event ends promptly at 3 p.m.


Be sure to complete the workshop preference portion of the registration. While participants would prefer to receive their first and second choices; there are limited workshop sizes, and the number of girls enrolled in the program makes this very difficult. Enrollment is first-come, first-serve, and workshops fill! Workshop assignments are final. Workshop size minimums and maximums are 10 and 16 respectively. Confirmation of enrollment, indicating workshop placement, will be mailed to participants after October 24. The non-refundable tuition for the conference is $25, payable at the time of registration, and includes two morning workshops, snack break, lunch, one afternoon workshop, T-shirt and goodie bag.

UW-Fond du Lac Continuing Education, and the Marian University and Moraine Park Technical College Foundations offer scholarships for girls demonstrating financial need. Please indicate on the registration form if you qualify for the 2012-13 free/reduced lunch program at your school and enclose a copy of the Parent Notification of Eligibility.
