Accessibility needs, dietary needs, and allergies must be indicated during registration to arrange for accurate services and preparation. The College will try to accommodate these requests. There is no guarantee that requests can be honored. We strive to work with our partners and vendors to provide safe and delicious meals for all attendees.

We encourage meeting attendees who are paying by credit card to register online.
