Agenda: Click here to access the Conference Agenda.
This year we are pleased to partner with the Office of Respondent Parent Counsel and, although we will have one joint track on Monday, the other tracks on Monday are separate.
Please note that OCR-only participants will have two options for breakout on Monday: the OCR/ORPC joint track or the OCR-only track. ORPC participants may attend the OCR/ORPC joint track of the ORPC-only track. Because of our different funding requirements it is very important for everyone to remember to “stay on their track”!
[toggle title=”Donations for RMIAN” open=”no”]
The OCR has worked hard to make this conference affordable, and there is no fee to attend the training, no cost to receive presentation materials, and no cost for meals. We would like each of you to consider making a suggested donation of $75.00 to this year’s beneficiary, RMIAN Children’s Program.
You may bring a check (payable to “RMIAN”) or cash to the conference as we will have a donation box at the registration table.
[toggle title=”Materials” open=”no”]
Only a limited number of handouts will be available at the conference so we encourage you to print your own copies of materials you wish to have on hand for the training. We will do our best to post all materials that have been submitted by Friday, September 8th. Materials will remain available electronically after the training.
[toggle title=”Meals” open=”no”]
We will provide a light Continental Breakfast on Sunday morning and a heartier breakfast on Monday morning. Lunch will be provided both days. If you indicated that you have a dietary preference, please let us know at check-in so we can provide you with a special meal ticket.

Please join us after the conference program on Sunday from 4:30 to 6:00 for a reception of appetizers and a cash bar on Sunday evening (Sept. 10th).
