CLE Materials/Handouts – OADC is increasingly aware that every piece of printed paper has an impact on our event’s carbon footprint. In an effort to minimize paper waste and reduce meeting costs, CLE session materials will NOT be printed for attendees. Instead, they will be provided to each attendee electronically (via email) in advance of the convention (approximately week prior). If you wish to reference the materials during the sessions, we strongly encourage you to print and bring a copy. Power access will be extremely limited and not guaranteed. Printing materials onsite will not be able to be accommodated. Materials will be provided to attendees only as they are submitted by each speaker.

Companion Registration: Includes Thursday night reception and dinner with beverage coupons and Friday lunch for the entire family.

Cancellation Policy
: Cancellations received on or before May 30 will receive the full registration amount back, minus a $50 administrative fee. Cancellations received between May 31 and June 5 will receive a 50% refund of total fees. Cancellations received after June 5, no shows and same-day cancellations will not receive a refund. There will be no refunds given for partial attendance.

Space is limited and early registration is encouraged. In the event that room space becomes filled to capacity, some registrants will not be able to be accommodated and will be notified. Registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
