Conference registration fees are the same for virtual or in-person attendance. Presenters must register for the conference and there is no discounted fee.

We have no insight into the future and it is our best hope to offer the conference in both formats. We will know better if there is a need for a full virtual experience as we enter into the new year.

CCBC faculty, staff and students will receive separate registration details.

The Train-The-Trainer CRTL Institute is a separate registration fee and not a registration for the conference.
