CONFERENCE 2019 REGISTRATION PROCEDURES

Your 2019 CHT Biennial Conference organizers are working hard to give you a good value for your registration dollars, with an exciting class schedule and fun activities throughout the pre-conference and conference periods.

Your $255 registration fee will include the following highlights and events:

 

We want registration to be smooth and easy. Please read the following information CAREFULLY:
  1. We offer the ease and convenience of on-line registration. (Mail-in registrations will still be possible for those who don’t want to use the on-line option.)
  2. Priority Registration period is February 1 – 15, 2019 ONLY for current CHT members. Open Registration begins February 16, 2019 and all are welcome.
  3. Between now and Feb 1 you should carefully read through all the registration materials and select your preferred courses and conference options. The downloadable registration materials are up on the website: https://www.weavetexas.org/conference/
  4. To help avoid schedule conflicts, a convenient one page class planning grid is available at: https://www.weavetexas.org/Class-Schedule-Grid-2019FW.pdf
  5. You will only be able to access the Registration Page IF YOU ARE LOGGED INTO YOUR CHT ACCOUNT. Between now and Feb 1 you should verify your membership by going to the CHT website, weavetexas.org and logging into your “membership account”.
  6. Priority Registration opens on February 1, 2019. As always, classes will be assigned on a first-come-first-served All mail-in registrations received on or before February 1, 2019 will be entered by proxy by the conference committee beginning February 1, 2019. Mailing in your registration does not offer an advantage over online registration.
  7. As a class fills up the option to register for it will become unavailable. There will be a “Wait List” option for  full classes.

Many of the choices your organizers must make in planning these events are driven by projected attendance, plus we accrue certain benefits and obligations with the hotel depending on room reservations. Your early registration and hotel booking will assist us greatly in our planning process and help us maximize the value we can deliver. So, we would greatly appreciate your taking advantage of the priority registration period, if possible.

Taking the time to log in now is important because you must be able to log in to your member account to register online for the Conference.

Please try logging in before February 1, 2019.
