To purchase tickets to any Section sponsored ticketed and non ticketed events you must be registered for the meeting. Tickets for evening events and luncheons can be purchased on the registration form or onsite the day before the events and luncheons. We regret that because we must guarantee our final numbers with the hotel and venues the day before, we can not sell same-day tickets. There will, however, be a bulletin board at registration where meeting attendees can exchange and gift tickets.
EARLY BIRD DISCOUNTS
Registrations must be postmarked no later than March 8th, 2010 to receive the early bird discount. Registrations must be received by the Section office by March 8th for registrants to be included in the List of Attendees.
Group discounts are available for multiple registrations from law firms and corporate legal departments submitted prior to March 31, 2010. You will receive 50% off the highest registration fee for each additional registrant after the fifth full paying registrant, as long as all register at the same time.
Please contact Jessica Smith at email@example.com or 202.662.1673 for additional information and instructions about completing this process.
Confirmations will be sent within two weeks of receipt of your registration form (provided complete information and appropriate payment was submitted). Please be advised that incomplete registration forms will delay the processing of your registration.
