Registration for Spouses and Partners

There is a separate registration fee for spouses and partners of CAOs and CSAOs who wish to participate in the concurrent Spouses and Partners Program. The program includes the opening reception and buffet dinner, all plenary and concurrent sessions (unless otherwise indicated), a welcoming coffee hour, breakfast discussions, a presentation on San Antonio’s history, and concurrent sessions especially for spouses and partners. Spouses and partners who wish to attend only specific events such as the welcoming buffet dinner or the optional trip should sign up for those activities on the registration form and not register for the full Institute.
