RA Conference Registration


Registration available through December 17, 2013

Group Registration
Individual Registration Form

The conference fee is $90 per person. The fee includes all program sessions; breakfast, lunch and an evening dinner on Saturday; continental breakfast on Sunday; two evenings of fun-filled entertainment; on-campus housing; and some fun surprises.

Also, registration fees are non-refundable after December 31, 2013.

If you arrive to our campus prior to 6:45pm on Friday and would like to eat on campus, dinner will be available in our Rialto Dining Center (directly beneath the registration area).  It will be at a reduced rate of $8 for all you care to eat.  However, this must be paid in cash at the door when you enter.

We are asking that you list up to twelve delegates (which includes advisors) who want to attend the conference. You may list more delegates in the alternate section, with the understanding that they are in alternate status. You will be notified by January 7, 2014 if we are able to accommodate your alternate delegates. We have set the limit in order to accept people from as many schools as possible.

Every delegate and advisor must complete the Individual Registration form. All forms must be signed and brought to conference check-in on January 24th. To participate in the conference, we must have a completed form on file for each delegate and advisor.

Please mail your payment to the address listed below and it should be postmarked by December 31, 2013.  If you choose to pay by credit card, the link will appear at the end of your submitted registration.

In an effort to provide a wide array of quality programs, and to share the resources and insights from each institution attending the conference, every delegation that registers for the conference is expected to submit at least one program proposal.

RA Conference Participants will be able to:

  • Cultivate their own personal development by presenting a conference session or participating in the case study.
  • Identify multiple levels of diversity, including the ongoing development of their identity, and how to create an inclusive community.
