Event Description

Join us for our Forever Weekend Retreat! Enjoy a weekend away working on your photos and learning about ways to collect, curate, and celebrate them!

Sponsored by Forever, Inc. with special guests Tara Claborn from the home office, Jan McCallum of pixels2Pages, Abby Totten from customer support and more. Your host Ambassador for this retreat is Executive Ambassador Deanna Johnson.

Forever Retreats are weekend-long memory-keeping events sponsored by Forever™, and hosted by our Forever™ Ambassadors. These events are held at all times of the year, all over the United States and Canada. Anyone who has story to share or photos to celebrate is invited!

At a Retreat you’ll find time to design projects with old friends and create memories with new friends. And you’ll be joined by the Forever home office staff, Forever’s pixels2Pages™ Team and Forever Ambassadors – all of whom are on hand to answer any questions you may have about Forever. You’ll have exclusive access to information and training for Forever Storage™, Forever™ Projects, Forever Artisan®, Forever Historian™, and the Forever Ambassador program. But it gets even better than that! Several optional breakouts will also be available for even more thorough training.

Finally, in addition to an awesome goody bag, you will also have the opportunity to learn more about your camera when you attend a Click with Nick photo session with world-renowned photographer and author Nick Kelsh.

(Note: While the experience at Forever Retreats are unique, breakout sessions among all events are uniform.)

What to expect:

  • A crop room so that you can sit down, plug in, and get it done!

  • Friday dinner, and lunch and dinner on Saturday

  • A fantastic goody bag

  • Access to a month of free training on Forever's desktop software programs
