    Trip to the Chicago Loop, Friday Afternoon: Friday afternoon/evening will feature a special trip to downtown Chicago, where each participant will choose to participate in one major field trip or activity. (Attendance of guests and spouses is included in fee.) The cost of your chosen activity is built into the price of the conference, so no additional charges will be made for this. Some of the choices are limited, so we encourage you to select your choice as soon as registration opens. Besides visiting the world-class city of Chicago, those who have attended CBFA conferences in the past will attest that some of the best networking takes place on bus trips!

    If you cannot go to Chicago, some local options will be available that evening. You may stay on campus and network, or relax at the hotel.
