We are pleased to offer an affordable meal plan option for the conference at the price of $200 for the week.

Conveniently, the meal plan options are with the Dobbs Common Table, an all-you-can-eat style cafeteria located inside the Emory Student Center just across the hall from the conference meeting rooms. The dining hall features indoor and outdoors seating options. Vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, kosher, and halal options are available here. Meal plan registrants will receive a wrist band to use to swipe in for meals.
