Registration Fees

The National Center for State Courts (NCSC), through GR Section friend and supporter Bill Raftery, has generously invited the Section to hold its meeting at NCSC headquarters in historic Williamsburg.  Realizing that Williamsburg may be a little more difficult to get to and, perhaps, more expensive, the Section has priced registration at the low fee of $150.  We hope you’ll take advantage of the great registration price and unique opportunity this year’s workshop provides.  See you in Williamsburg.

Registration packages include Historic Williamsburg Access Ticket, Tuesday welcome reception, Tuesday Dinner Event TBD, Wednesday breakfast and lunch, Thursday breakfast, and coffee breaks throughout.

Any individual attending any portion of the substantive programming must pay the conference registration fee.
