CAO-CFO Spouses and Partners Program

A limited program is offered for spouses and partners of CAOs and CFOs. Registration at a separate fee includes the opening reception and buffet dinner and all plenary sessions. Additional sessions include a welcoming coffee hour, breakfast discussions, and a presentation on the history of the Northwest. The optional trips on Monday and Tuesday afternoons require an additional fee.

Spouses and partners 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 page and not register for the full Institute.
