How much credit will I earn? The 2013 ATRA Mid-Year Professional Issues Forum is participating in the NCTRC Pre-Approval Program. All CEU qualified sessions have been pre-approved by NCTRC. Attendees have the potential to earn 1.55 (CEUs from full-package registration and attending one session for each slot throughout the conference) or up to 2.15 CEUs (includes 0.65 CEUs from a full-day pre-conference intensive). Pre-Conferences require an additional registration and fee. May I have a copy of the tentative program? How could we say no! The Program When should I arrive and depart? If you register for a pre-conference, plan to be in class by 8:30 a.m. on Sunday, March 10, 2013—with the except of the half day Geocaching pre-conference which begins at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday. The first regular session, the opening general session, included with the full-package registration, begins at 5:30PM that night. Sessions continue until 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 12, 2013. What meals are included? A box lunch on Monday and a continental breakfast on Tuesday are included in full-package registration, as well as a Sunday night reception and Monday morning break that includes light snacks and beverages. What are the fees? Full- and daily-package registration includes general and concurrent sessions. Additional fees apply for all conference attendees for: CEUs and Pre-Conference Intensives. Students and members receive discounts. How can I save money? In most cases, the difference between the member and non-member fee is very close—or even more!—than the cost of membership dues plus the cost of membership fees. Do the math and consider joining ATRA!
