CAO/CSAO Spouses and Partners Program

There is a separate registration fee for spouses and partners of CAOs or CSAOs who wish to participate in a special program. The registration fee includes the opening reception and buffet dinner and all plenary sessions. Additional special sessions for CAO or CSAO spouses and partners include a welcoming coffee hour, breakfast discussion sessions, and a presentation about Pittsburgh on Sunday afternoon. A separate registration fee is required for the optional trips on Monday and Tuesday afternoons.

Spouses and partners who wish to attend only specific events, such as the welcoming buffet dinner or an optional trip, should sign up and pay for those activities on the registration page and not register for the full Institute.

As additional sessions are confirmed, CIC will add information to the Institute website
