I NEED TO MAKE A CHANGE TO MY CONFERENCE REGISTRATION. CAN I ADD OR EDIT SESSION CHOICES? CAN I ADD OR CHANGE A LUNCHEON?

Yes, you can log back in from the conference registration page and make changes to your sessions and luncheons up until registration closes.

WHERE CAN I GET A COPY OF MY RECEIPT FOR THE UPCOMING CONFERENCE?

You can get a receipt at any time by going to the confirmation email sent to you after you registered.

I FORGOT TO REGISTER BEFORE THE DEADLINE. CAN I STILL COME TO THE CONFERENCE?

Yes. For an additional $50, you may register onsite at the conference for any available sessions. Just come to the registration desk and look for onsite registration.

WHERE WILL THE CONFERENCE BE HELD?

The CCIRA Conference will be held at the Marriott Denver Tech Center (4900 Syracuse St. Denver, CO 80237). To reserve a room at the hotel, please click on the following link: Hotel Registration

WHEN DOES THE CONFERENCE START?

The Exhibit Hall opens and registration packets will be available at the CCIRA Conference registration table at the Marriott Denver Tech Center Hotel starting at 5:00 pm on Wednesday. The first session is the Thursday Morning General session.

IF THE PARKING LOT AT THE DENVER MARRIOTT TECH CENTER FILLS UP, WHERE SHOULD I PARK?

IMPORTANT: The Marriott Denver Tech Center has parking available. However, due to the number of people who attend the conference, we make arrangements for off-site parking and shuttle buses to transport you between the parking lot and the hotel. Please refer to the registration booklet for a detailed map, shuttle bus information and schedule. Light rail is also a terrific option; the Belleview station is a short walk from the hotel.

Make sure to allow yourself plenty of time to park, shuttle, and arrive at the Marriott for our 7:30 am General Sessions.

HOW DO WE RECEIVE COLLEGE CREDIT FOR ATTENDING THE CONFERENCE?

You can earn 1 hour of college credit by attending 15 hours of keynotes, sessions, luncheons, and exhibits (only one hour of exhibit visits). You must keep a log of your attendance and write at least a one paragraph of the key learnings from all your sessions. It costs just $100 and more information will be provided in the conference program.

I ATTENDED THE CONFERENCE LAST YEAR, CAN YOU SEND ME A COPY OF MY OLD RECEIPT?

We are a volunteer-led nonprofit organization. Unfortunately, the cost to house records from prior years is too great. That is why we only maintain records of the most recent conference. On Nov 1st when registration opens, we no longer have access to conference registration information from prior that year. That is why we remind you at the end of the registration to print a copy for your records.

I NEED TO CANCEL MY CONFERENCE REGISTRATION BECAUSE OF THE WEATHER, AN ILLNESS OR UNFORESEEN EVENT. HOW DO I DO THAT?

Our conference cancellation policy is always found in the registration booklet and states:

Refunds for the CCIRA conference will not be given for inclement weather or due to scheduling conflicts. In the event of a non-weather related emergency, written documentation must accompany the request. Refunds will not be issued for payments of $75.00 or less. A $75 non-refundable processing fee will be charged up to registration deadline and then $100 non-refundable processing fee will be charged after that date up to start of conference for all refunds.  If a refund request is made before the registration deadline, all monies for payment of the conference will be refunded. Membership dues will not be refunded. After that time, refund requests must be made within 10 days of the start and 10 days of the end of the conference. Refunds during this time, if granted, will be for registration fees only, not meals, or membership dues and shall be considered on an individual basis.  

To submit your cancellation request please email Lisa Kahn at lisakahnccira@gmail.com.

IF IT SNOWS HOW WILL WE KNOW IF YOU'VE CANCELLED THE CONFERENCE?
