SIOP Pre-Conference Workshops:
What You Need To Know


Sixteen Workshops will be offered again this year. Detailed descriptions follow this introduction. We anticipate that workshops will fill up quickly, so, register NOW to get the workshop of your choice! We operate on a first-come, first-served basis. On-site Workshop registration is available ONLY if someone who has pre-registered for a workshop fails to show up.

Date and Schedule

The workshops will take place on Thursday, April 13, 2000the day before the regular program of the SIOP Conference begins. More specifically:

Registration: 7:15 a.m. - 8:30 a.m.

Morning Workshops: 8:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Lunch: 12:00 p.m - 1:30 p.m.

Afternoon Workshops: 1:30 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Reception (Social Hour) 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

How to Register

To register, complete the "Workshops" section of the General Conference Pre-Registration Form. Registration for the Workshops is on a first-come, first-served basis. All Workshops are half-day sessions and will be presented twiceonce in the morning and once in the afternoon. You must register for two half-day sessions (no half-day registration allowed).

The Workshops section of the form asks you to list your top six choices. Because Workshops fill up very quickly, we ask that you do list all six choices. Please list your choices in order of preference (1st is highest preference, 6th is lowest preference). If you list fewer than six Workshops and your choices are filled, we will assume that you are not interested in any other Workshops (unless you indicate on the General Conference Pre-Registration Form that you will accept any open section) and your Workshop registration fee will be refunded.


SIOP members and affiliates: $350

Non-members of SIOP: $500

Fees include all registration materials for two workshop sessions, lunch, and the social hour. Additional guest tickets for the social hour may be purchased at the door. The cost will be posted at the door of the social hour room.

If Your Organization is Paying by Check

Please mail your General Conference Pre-Registration Form to the SIOP Administrative Office, even if your organization is sending a check separately. (Sometimes they don't send the form.) Indicate on the copy of the form that your organization is paying. Make sure your name is on the check. (Sometimes organizations don't indicate whom the payment is for.) Keep in mind that your registration will not be finalized until payment is received.
