Pre-conference and post-conference registration costs are a further discounted $50 per person per day. The University has a commitment to making the training accessible, and we are grateful to our partners who have helped us reduce the cost to one of the lowest costs for a full-service conference in the nation. Registration includes all content, continental breakfast, full plated lunch with vegetarian, vegan, gluten free and other options (indicated upon registration), morning and afternoon snacks, access to additional digital and live table content, and materials. Further, we have been able to slightly reduce the costs of parking to $5 per day (for the first 275 registering cars per day; more information on the venue/facilities tab). Space is limited and you may register here.
