Registration

You will receive confirmation by email. Approximately one week prior to the conference, you will receive a registration packet in the mail. It will contain an acknowledgment with your session/tour choices and locations, parking map, and a name badge with badge holder. Please bring these materials with you to the conference—or be prepared to wait in line for a replacement. Programs will be distributed at the conference.

Tours

Most tours—including bus tours—require a substantial amount of walking outdoors. Please wear sensible shoes and sign up for a tour only if you are prepared to do some walking. The following tours require less walking: A8, B5, B7, C5. If you are unsure about tour requirements, email Janet or call 401-222-2078.

If the tour is canceled, we will make an announcement at the Opening Session and post a sign at the Registration Table. You will be invited to visit the Registration Table to select another available session.

Boat tours

We will provide a shuttle to and from the dock. The boat is partially covered with a roof and curtains. We reserve the right to cancel the boat tours in case of bad weather.
