    Above says it will be held at Brookdale Community College, Middle Township, NJ. The college is in Lincroft, NJ, which is part of MIDDLETOWN Township, although I think people will be confused if you say Middletown, Township. Everything on the College website refers to Lincroft, for that particular campus.

    Fran- good catch. We'll make the correction to Lincroft. Lois- if you go the registration page, under the FAQs are a list of nearby hotels.

    What are the hours? I live close enough to drive each day, but didn't see anything about the start/end times.

    Hi Debbie,

    The seminar runs from 10am-5pm both days, but doors open for registration at 9am. Hope to see you there!

    How close to capacity is the seminar? I have an infant in NICU (5 weeks early, no issues except learning how to eat)so I can't commit to the seminar unless & until I know when PJ would be coming home. Is. There a number I could call if all is well the day before to reserve a ticket?
    Also, is this a hands on working seminar, do participants bring a dog?
    Thank you!
