The 2014 National Roundtable & Refresh Cache will be October 22-24 in Peoria, IL at Northwoods Community Church.
Again this year we are planning for a great event of connecting with peers, sharing in community and collaborating in innovation.
If you work, volunteer, or dabble in church IT… or you don’t yet serve a local ministry but you just love gadgets, tech or code and want to learn ways to impact local ministry with technology this is a can’t miss event for you.
Plan to join us to contribute to the conversation and expect to learn from your peers from around the country….It’s 3 days of Geekery, Awesomeness and uber amounts of food. Registration for the 3 day event includes all meals and activities for just $75.

Looking around at hotel options (yes, I am a planner!). Is the hope to have some special rates for attendees somewhere? Rates seem pretty high in Peoria for name brand hotels.
Craig, i am actively working with hotels to negotiate rates this week.. I’ll be sure we post the info as soon as we have it.
Hey Jason, any update?
Hey Craig, we have negotiated rates with 6 different hotels, including a couple options that will offer a shuttle service to/from the airport and to/from the church campus for the Roundtable. The options range from $89/night up to $125 per night depending on the hotel you select.
We will be posting that information on churchitnetwork.com very soon.
Excellent! Thanks for your work on this!
Also as a planner, what is the event registration cost and usually how many people are in attendance?
Registration is $75 which includes lunch and dinner. We’re expecting over 200 again … maybe we’ll hit 300 this year? :-)

Thank you very much Jason for the very quick response on this. Would love to setup a time to talk personally to you. Is there a day and time that would work for you?
Jason, has the hotel info posted somewhere and I just cannot find it?
Craig, you can expect that information to be posted this week.
Hotel & Registration information is now available on http://www.churchitnetwork.com/
Do you have to call to get the special rates or do they have a rate code to put in?
Just wondering if you knew what time the ChMS discussion will be on the 21st. I’d be very interested to try and attend that if the timing was right, so as I look at travel plans, it’d be great to know that.
Eric, the chms day is a pre conference activity and is coordinated by each individual chms. Most will be hosted at a local church that uses each individual chms.
Craig, I suggest calling the hotel you choose for the group rates.
Oh! So it’s more of an “open house” than a discussion. Ah… Then I won’t make a huge point of trying to be out there for it. I misunderstood what it was.
No, my understanding was more of a chms specific roundtable.. It is just coordinated by each chms and may or may not be on our campus… Who is your chms? We can see what their plans are

We use CCB, but I was more interested in learning about other ChMS options. We’re not planning to switch right now, but I always want to make sure we’re using the option that is the best fit for our needs.
Where do we fly into?
Kjell Nygren, Peoria has an airport and is served by American, United and Delta. No Southwest, unfortunately.
