IF THE PARKING LOT AT THE DENVER MARRIOTT TECH CENTER FILLS UP, WHERE SHOULD I PARK?
IMPORTANT: The host hotel this year is the Marriott Denver Tech Center. The hotel has both open parking and garage level parking available. 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. Also, allow yourself plenty of time to park, shuttle, and arrive at the Marriott for our 8:15 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.
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.
WHERE WILL THE CONFERENCE BE HELD?
The 2017 CCIRA Conference will be held at the Denver Marriott Tech Center.
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 pm on Wednesday. The first session is the Thursday Morning General session at 7:30 AM at the Marriott.
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: Refund of registration fees and meals will be given for requests up to approximately one week prior to the conference. Requests received after that point will be for registration fees only (NOT meals) and shall be considered on an individual basis by the conference and registration chairs. Refund requests received after Feb 15th will not be considered. There is a $25 non-refundable processing fee per refund. Therefore, requests of payments $25 or less will not be issued. NO refunds will be made due to weather. In the event of a non-weather emergency, written documentation must accompany the requests. To submit your cancellation request please email Lisa Kahn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
IF IT SNOWS HOW WILL WE KNOW IF YOU'VE CANCELLED THE CONFERENCE?
