Annual Conference Symposia Now Available!
 
Check out the 12 commercially supported Symposia that are available at the Annual Conference! 
 
Four symposia sessions will offer additional CE credits! However, some of these sessions run concurrently, so you will not be able to attend them all. You could earn up to 3 additional CE credits from symposia alone!
 
Symposia Registration
If you are already registered for the Annual Conference, click here to log back into your registration and add your symposia choices.
 
If you have not registered for the Annual Conference, click here to begin the registration process.

Symposia spaces are limited!
If a session is marked as sold out, you can still select it to be put on the wait list. However, this does not guarantee you a spot in that session. Registration is based on a first-come, first-served basis. There may be an opportunity on-site for you to attend a program that was previously filled. We will have a staging area for those interested in attending a full session.
Don't Miss Out On the Discounts!

The Annual Conference registration early bird pricing will end on Friday, March 31, 2017, at 11:59 pm EDT. Register early to save before the prices increase!

 
Reserve your room(s) for the Annual Conference soon! The group discount will end on Friday, April 21, 2017, at 11:59 pm EDT. After this date, all requests will be fulfilled on a space available basis.

If you have any questions or technical difficulties, please contact jking@wocn.org.
