Note that guests of participants do not have to register, but our registration forms ask for information about how many guests to expect. It is crucial that we have an accurate count of all attendees. If you plan to attend with a family member, for example, please enter the requested information in the form you submit. In addition, if your guest will join us for lunch, we need to know that in advance so that we can prepare to meet any special dietary needs.
