Sunday Workshops

CEEA-ACEG Member Workshop Registration

This year, we are offering the regular Sunday workshops, as well as the teaching and research institute. Registration for ALL Workshops is required prior to arriving on site to allow for proper planning of the organizing hosts and facilitators.
  • The research institute runs all day Sunday, so that can be taken as an alternative to participating in the Sunday workshops
  • The teaching institute runs over the duration of the conference, and so you can still take workshops in the first three slots on Sunday
  • The CEEA-ACEG member fee is $80 across the board and that covers as many Sunday workshops as you like, the research institute, or the teaching institute + Sunday workshops

Workshop registration includes: 

  • access to workshops on June 3 (registration required)
  • lunch on June 3
  • Cost: $ 80.00 for the day for CEEA-ACEG members, although registration for each individual workshop will be required to allow for planning
