Registration closes on Friday, 4/5 BUT walk-ins are welcome on the day of the symposium. However, not all workshops may be available.

You will also see an additional $2.00 fee charged to your credit card, which is the convenience fee charged by Club Express for using their online portal to register. There are no additional service fees if paying by check and registering by mail.
