Don't hesitate to ask your principal or organization to cover the cost of joining a conference, especially since they will also be reaping the benefits from your increased knowledge. An article in Brazen titled "How to Get Your Company to Fund Professional Training and Development" does a great job of outlining best practices on how to do so.
