Registration deadline extensionSome organizations have asked for a little more time to register as they work to decide who will attend, secure funding and get travel approved. The Summit venue capacity is 1,200 maximum. For everyone the deadline for registration at this link has been extended to March 30, 2018. Please note that it is first come first served so when we reach the 1,200 number that will be it!
