Trees Virginia is now charging $10 registration (this fee covers a light continental breakfast, Paypal fees, materials, etc) for each attendee. 

The fee is $20 if you would like a boxed lunch, with only prepaid orders being reserved.

When reviewing expenses, the Board realized subsidizing Roundtables results in less funding for its academic scholarships and getting the next generation trained is something we all know is important.
