Please register for the Presidents Institute online. You may pay for the Institute by:

The online registration system offers data security and the flexibility to register yourself and/or someone else. For example, an assistant in the president’s office can sign in to the CIC website with his or her own contact information and have the option to register the institution’s president as well as the presidential spouse or partner.

If you do not have a CIC password, cannot recall it, or if you do not have an account in the CIC registration system, please use the “Forgot your password or need to create an account?” link on the sign in page.

*Retired President Eligibility

CIC welcomes retired presidents who wish to participate in the Presidents Institute and remain involved in discussions of professional matters with former colleagues. Having retired presidents participate in the Institute is of value to current presidents, especially those who are relatively new to their positions, as an additional source of advice from more experienced colleagues. Retired presidents who work for a sponsoring firm, however, should participate in the Presidents Institute as one of the firm’s representatives, not as a retired president. Retired presidents who work for a firm that is eligible to be a sponsor, but is not, may not participate in the Institute.

Questions about eligibility to register as a retired president should be directed to David G. Brailow, CIC vice president for development, at dbrailow@cic.nche.edu or (202) 552-8977.
