Should I bring my team to the Event?
YES! Absolutely! Over half of the offices attending the Crown Council Annual Event bring their team to the Event! They make plans early, they have a financial plan to earn and save money, they nominate each other for awards, they work on the Qualified Membership Requirements..... and they look forward to the Annual Event all year long. Bringing your entire team to the Event is a fabulous idea. It helps your entire team to be on the same page and get energized and motivated as they return to the office.
Should I bring my spouse to the Annual Event? Would he/she enjoy it?
YES! Absolutely! About 90% of the Crown Council Membership bring their partner to the Event. Most of the speakers and break-out session material can be applied to practically any business or personal situation, so even if your partner isn’t in the dental industry, they will still enjoy all of the planned activities. Plus, they get to enjoy the amazing M Resort and Spa!
Who can attend the Event?
ANY MEMBER of the Crown Council can attend the Annual Event and may bring their spouse, their family, and their team members. You DO NOT have to be a Qualified Member to attend. You DO NOT have to be a participant in Smiles for Life to attend. Every member of the Crown Council is welcome! In fact, if you know a “like-minded- Eagle” dentist friend who you think would be interested in coming, invite them to come with you. Every year we have a few Crown Council Members who invite a dental friend to join them. By the end of the weekend, they are learning and sharing with the group and have joined our unique culture.

10. Drs. Chris Hammond and Chad Ellis of the Crown Council have brought their team
to the last 12 Annual Events. They always do numbers 1 – 9 listed above, plus.....
Throughout the year, during their weekly meetings, Dr. Hammond assigns each team member to present a topic that was covered at the Annual Event in more depth. He does NOT pre-assign these topics before the Event. So, each team member MUST pay attention and take notes during each speaker and break-out session.... Because throughout the year, they could be asked to present any topic covered. This is a great way to make sure you are all there, paying attention and taking notes. Because..... YOU might be the one presenting the information again to the team!

You’ll be able to pick the style and kind of Tuxedo you would like. Your Tux will be waiting for you at the M Resort and Spa on the day before the Awards Dinner.

What is the refund policy for the Annual Event?
When you sign up for the Annual Event, The Crown Council charges $300.00 per person for a deposit. This deposit is fully refundable up until September 12thth, 2011. If you are making monthly payments, this $300.00 is regarded as your deposit.
All charges for the Annual Event are due (and your card will be charged) 30 days prior to the beginning of the Event. All Event costs are non-refundable after January 2nd, 2012. It is highly recommended that you arrange to pay the costs of the Annual Event in monthly installments. The Crown Council office is standing by to help you with this arrangement. You can call Annie at 1-800-276-9658 or email her at email@example.com
If you have to cancel a reservation after September 12th, it is always a good option to invite someone to come in that person’s place so you don’t lose the $300.00 deposit. Our goal is to make the Annual Event as affordable as possible. One way we do that is committing early to the hotel and our event vendors on the number of attendees. We appreciate your early commitment which helps us plan our financial commitment to the hotel.
Thanks for helping us make the Crown Council’s 17th Annual Event a totally awesome, one-of-a-kind experience!
