Sonoran Conference

Sonoran X Conference is here, and the theme for this conference is "Plants for the Sonoran Desert Hobbyist".

Since 1996, every even numbered year, we have held a two-day event called the Sonoran Conference. It has a huge plant (including some native rescued cactus), cactus and succulent books, art and pottery sale. We also put on the best plant show in Southern Arizona, featuring only cacti and succulents from our private member collections. We also have a great silent auction, be the last bidder on a plant and you will get a great deal. And TCSS will sell rescued cacti! All of this is Open to the Public at no charge.

Every odd numbered year we organize a Spring Expo Event in April. Watch the calendar for more information.

The Sonoran X Conference will be held at the:

Hotel Tucson City Center Inn Suites

475 N. Granada Ave. Tucson AZ 85701.

Dates are Saturday April 19, 2014 (8am -9pm) and Sunday April 20 (8am -3:30pm). There will be five guest speakers and four workshops.

If you have already paid the $50 early Registration fee to hold your place for the Sonoran X Conference, just deduct that amount from additional payments due. If you are doing a Full TCSS Member Registration, the cost is $120 so you would owe an additional $70. The early payment was to guarantee you a place and to give you priority in the Workshop selections versus attendees who just want one or two workshops. When you make your additional payment, please add a note that you previously paid $50. Refunds are always an option too if done at least 3 days before the conference due to meal guarantees to the hotel.
