Register to Attend the RMECC 2016 Conference

Registration for RMECC 2016

Online registration is now closed. You may register the day of the conference at the registration desk to attend this year's conference. Registrations that day are $280 for a two-day registration and $155 for a one-day registration. Special meal requests will not be accommodated for day-of-conference registrations.

Planning to attend the face-to-face Colorado Shines Level 2 courses? Attendance for each course will be on a first-come first-served basis, and participants will receive two clock hours for each completed course which will count toward meeting the Level 2 training requirements. It is not necessary to attend all seven courses, and there will be 90 seats available for each course.
In order to receive credit for attending any of the Colorado Shines Level 2 courses, you will need to be registered in the Professional Development Information System (PDIS). If you are not already registered, please complete the simple registration as soon as possible at ecpd.costartstrong.org. You can also register in the PDIS during the conference in the exhibit hall.
Attendees of the Level 2 courses will confirm participation through roster sign-in sheets so hours can be credited in their PDIS accounts. Contact information will be collected from individuals who are unable to get into sessions so that future Level 2 training opportunities can be planned and offered.
Each training includes a variety of activities such as reflective writing opportunities, video discussion questions, or role-playing scenarios. Download this pdf for details:
