Ken,

I understand that all these all-day "pre-conf" workshops are scheduled for Thurs March 18. I could potentially attend one. However, I would not be able to attend the main conference at all.

Are the Fees listed for each the whole cost? I assume that I would not have to register for the conference to attend one of these, correct?

Thanks,
Jim

Jim,

For those who only wish to attend on day there are single day options on the registration web page. For the Thrusday sessions, there is a $25.00 registration fee in addition to the cost of the institute. Of course, meals and housing are handled separately by those attending.
