*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 at the Institute is of value to current presidents, especially those who are relatively new to their positions, as an additional source of welcome advice from more experienced colleagues. Retired presidents who work for a sponsoring firm 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 should not participate in the Institute. Questions about eligibility to register as a retired president should be directed to Barbara Hetrick, CIC senior vice president, at bhetrick@cic.nche.edu or (202) 466-7230.


Presidents Institute Cancellation Policy
Please note that CIC requires full payment by check or credit card at the time of registration. Refunds of the registration fee (less a $50 processing fee) will be given for cancellations received in writing no later than December 3, 2015. Refund requests received between December 4 and December 13 will incur a charge equal to 25 percent of the total registration fee. Requests received after December 13, 2015, and “no shows” are ineligible for a refund. All refunds will be paid after the Institute.
