Registration Information

Registration for the 2018 Fall Leadership Conference is a two-step process. The first step you will need to complete is registering for the conference via this link.  There is a $50.00 fee associated with the conference this year, you can pay either with a P-Card (credit card) or via a PO.

Once that is completed your room and food registration form can be submitted. Please see the downloadable form here.  Important: If you are coming down on Wednesday and you would like to eat lunch you need to note that on the form by checking the box under the Wednesday room reservation.  Lunch is not bundled into the Wednesday room registration - only dinner is.  

If you are coming down on Wednesday but not staying the night, you will need to purchase a commuter meal. Please see the room/food reservation form for more information.

Deadline for conference registration is end of business day on October 8th, 2018. We cannot guarantee that you will have a nametag available if you register late.
