Make sure to cancel your Friday rehearsal and join us for an important gathering of your peers. The one day conference fee is $150 per person and Graduate credit through UNC is offered or a continuing hours certificate. Be sure to check with your administration to see if the cost can be covered by your buildings professional development fund. The registration cost includes an awards dinner and reception at the Grand Hyatt. A special room block can be booked for your overnight stay at Grand Hyatt (email for questions of concerns).
