Registration for Spouses

There is a separate registration for spouses of CAOs who wish to participate in a special program for spouses. The program includes the opening reception and buffet dinner, all plenary sessions, a welcoming coffee hour, breakfast discussion sessions, a presentation on San Antonio, and concurrent presentations. Spouses who wish to attend only specific events such as the welcoming buffet dinner or an optional trip should sign up for those activities on the registration form and not register for the full Institute.
