One important change to our program is that all companions will be required to register ($20.00 per person, ages 5 and over).  Registered companions will be issued a conference badge, which will be your ticket to access the Companions Room – located in the Sheraton’s Diamond Room – where we’ll have a continental breakfast, Monday through Thursday.  This badge will also provide you access to the Exhibitor and Cherry Award receptions.  No companion registration will be required if you will ONLY attend the banquet.

Please use the "Add New Registrant" button above and register EACH companion that will accompany you to the conference. Please note that companions will NOT be granted access to the scientific program.

1-Day Rate
You may register to attend for a single day using the the 1-day rate. However, if you will attend for more than one day, you must select the Full Registration option.
