Take advantage of registration on the Internet to reserve seats in F Courses. It is recommended that you arrive on time for your courses at the MWM, as advanced registration for free courses will only guarantee seating up to the published start time of the course. If you did not reserve tickets for F Courses through registration, please be aware that you cannot obtain them on-site at General Registration. The balance of available tickets for F Courses will be printed in advance and distributed at the course room door, if seating is available. However, those attendees without tickets should arrive early at the classrooms, as they will be seated on a first-come, first-seated basis following the seating of on-time, registered attendees.
It is to your benefit to plan your travel and parking to allow sufficient time to arrive for the start of the free lecture(s) for which you have registered.
No. Tickets can not be requested for concurrent sessions. If you register by mail/fax, please be sure that courses are not concurrent; selecting concurrent courses will delay the registration process and may result in a course being sold out by Internet registrants while the registration company is trying to reach you to obtain your preference. If the courses you select run at concurrent times, we will consider the first, listed and paid course code as your priority, and you will be registered for that before the other chosen courses.
No. Participants must bring specific supplies for participation workshops. Reminders are listed in the Preliminary Program course description, on the Internet and in the Official Program. Also, refunds will not be accepted after Feb. 6.
Please note that one clock hour equals one credit hour. CE hours are printed on the course tickets. CE credits may not apply toward license renewal in all states. It is the responsibility of each attendee to verify the requirements of his/her licensing board. Please check with your state board if you question whether a particular course will meet your continuing education requirements.
All courses will be located in the West Building. You must obtain a copy of the Official Program on site to find all room numbers. A map will be available on site. Official programs are available throughout McCormick Place. Course room numbers will be posted online in mid-January.
Yes. Paid course tickets are available for sale on site in the General Registration Area, Level 3, Concourse. Free course tickets are only available during registration or at the course room door.
