If you are registered and find that you will be unable to attend, please notify the CALLERLAB Home Office as soon as possible, for your refund to be processed.

Special Event- Monday April 10, 2017

 News!  The 2017 CALLERLAB Convention planning committee has approved having a special event at Rawhide old western town near Mesa....Rawhide website .  Those attending the 12th CALLERLAB Convention in Phoenix will remember the fun we had when we were bused to Rawhide back in 1985.  Rawhide has now been moved in closer to Mesa.  There will be a slight extra charge of $10 per person for those wishing to attend this event to help cover transportation and entertainment. The special event will be optional but we are hoping everyone will want to join in the fun.   If you have already registered, the Home Office Staff will be contacting you to see if you wish to add the special event to your convention registration.  We hope you will attend!!!
