New This Year: Workshop Selection
Based on feedback from past conferences, attendees will now select their conference schedule during the online registration process. This means you will register for each institute and workshop, and the sessions you select will be the ones you attend onsite. Registration will be required to enter a session. The complete schedule of institutes and workshops is now available. Be sure to review the sessions prior to registration opening.
Important Note Regarding Group Registration
Many CASA programs like to register for the conference in one large registration group, rather than separately. Because of the changes this year, please be aware that the person registering for the group will have to select each group member’s workshop schedule in order to complete the registration process.
To help make the group registration process as smooth as possible, Texas CASA has developed a workshop selection form for you to share with your registration group so they can indicate their preferred sessions. You will need to have each of your registration group members’ workshop selections ready in order to successfully complete your group’s registration when registration opens on the 15th. We recommend you share this form with your group as soon as possible – as well as the link to the workshop descriptions – so that they can have plenty of time to choose their sessions.
NOTE: This form is for your planning purposes only, to help you expedite the online registration process – Texas CASA does not need to receive a copy.
The following are a few tips to help you prepare for registration:
- Payment is by credit card only – no checks will be accepted,
- Inform your bank of the large purchase you are about to make with your credit card,
- You must have a unique email address ready for each registrant when registering a group of people, as well as their workshop preferences,
- Be aware that each person will get their own individual email confirmation at the email address provided, and
- If you “opt out” of Cvent (our registration system) you will not get updates or reminders regarding the conference or future Texas CASA trainings.
