Conference Registration:

post_2015NSRIC_registerThe registration fee for the conference is $450.  Remember that the very low conference fee for last year was due to the cancellation of events due to the snow storm during NSRIC13.  I rolled funds from canceled events over from NSRIC13 to NSRIC14.  The registration cutoff date is 28 Feb 14. We have had several individuals that did not register before the cutoff date or thought they registered and had not.  Let your membership know that they need to get positive confirmation that their registration went through.  The system should respond automatically.  If not, please let me know.  You can register at this website: 


For the moment there is no replacement for Paula.  Any questions or issues should be directed to me at joe.carnevale@arlaw.com or 703 855-8529.
