Forum Reservations

Reservations, for members & spouses/partners only, open two days after the prior monthly program (or two days after the fourth Tuesday of the month).  The fee is $25 per person for the Forum and luncheon. Reservations are accepted on a first-come-first-served basis. Reservations, payment and cancellations are always due by 10 days prior.  For example, in the case of a Tuesday luncheon Forum, the deadline would be two Fridays prior.

UMRA COVID policy requires all event participants be vaccinated. Masks are optional.

Same-day reservations will not be offered.  Venues have deadlines for receipt of numbers for the ordering food and beverages.

Full year pre-payments will not be accepted at this time.

Make your reservation:

Members are strongly encouraged to reserve and pay online.  You will help the Host Team manage reservations accurately and meet venue deadlines for reservation numbers. Our goal is to avoid your disappointment if a reservation or check is lost in the mail, cyber space, etc.

Reservations (member & spouse/partner only) may be made online and paid by credit card, via PayPal*. Log in and make your reservation.

To make reservations and pay offline, if necessary, contact Diane Young at: young054@umn.edu.

Cancellations:

Refunds upon cancellation can be honored until 10 days prior to the Forum.  For example, in the case of a Tuesday luncheon, the deadline for cancellation with a refund would be two Fridays before that.

If you find you cannot attend a Forum for which you have a reservation, please be sure to cancel to make room for others.
