The registration book will be posted on our website in mid-October. It can be downloaded as a PDF. (We are no longer mailing out paper copies of the registration book.)
HOW CAN I REGISTER FOR THE CONFERENCE?
Online conference registration goes live on November 1st for CCIRA members on our website (November 2 for non-members). This is new this year; we wanted to thank our members by giving them a bit of a head start!
DO I HAVE TO REGISTER FOR ALL 3 DAYS OF THE CONFERENCE?
No. You may register for one day, two days or all three days. For a complete list of options and pricing, please see below:
HOW DO I RECEIVE A STUDENT OR RETIRED PROFESSIONAL DISCOUNT ON THE CONFERENCE REGISTRATION?
You must be a student member or retired professional member of CCIRA to receive a discount on the conference registration.

Once you have completed the online membership application form and credit card payment, please allow 30 minutes for it to be processed before attempting to register online for the conference.
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 on January 17, 2018.
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 JANUARY 17th 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, February 7, 2018. The first session is the Thursday Morning General session at 7:30 AM at the Marriott on February 8, 2018. (It’s Ralph Fletcher—you won’t want to miss it!)
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: 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 or scheduling conflicts. 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?
