Registration Information


Important Details

Registration opens January 1, 2015.
Registration closes May 27, 2015.

Full registration, including conference packet and admission to all events except the two luncheons, is $250.

Monday only Registration is $40, $24 for students.

Tuesday through Thursday day registrations are $100 per day, $60 per day for students.

*NB: Due to the high demand and limited space for the lunch sessions with the Cardinal Newman Society, all the spots are sold out. Those who registered early and indicated their desire to go to the luncheons have secured their spots and will have already received an email from the Cardinal Newman Society. Those who have secured a spot can pay for the lunches at the main registration table for the conference (at the Kaye Playhouse) or outside the door of the actual luncheon (at St. Catherine’s).

It is possible that a few spots may open up. If this is the case, all those registered for the conference will receive an email indicating how to reserve one of the remaining spots – they will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
