Registration fees cover the course, luncheon, coffee breaks, and text materials; these fees are not applicable to any other activities of the Society meetings. Students are offered a 50% discount on course registration. Advance registration is required. All courses are subject to cancellation pending an appropriate number of advance registrants.
