Welcome to the RAppin’ 2k17 information page! We are very excited for you to be joining us at the conference on October 6th and 7th in the beautiful Reno, Nevada. Please see the information below for more details or feel free to contact a member of the committee for more information.

Advisor Information:

Advisors will need to register themselves for the conference first. Afterward they will be prompted to add in delegate information. For delegations with multiple advisors, the main advisor will register first and then they will register the other advisors within the delegate section. There will be a drop down section so that you may note whether the conference attendee is an advisor or delegate.

Conference Costs:

Early bird registration is open until Monday, September 25, 2017 for a total of $150 per delegate or advisor. The conference price does not include hotel.

For all late registrations, the cost will be $175 per delegate or advisor. Registration will close on Friday, September 29, 2017.
