I am only attending the Wednesday GCTE meeting. Do I need to register?
No, if you are only attending the GCTE meeting Wednesday afternoon. You do not need to pay the registration fee. We will send out a separate in-person RSVP for the GCTE meeting. There will be a virtual option, but with A/V limitations we cannot guarantee a seamless virtual experience. We encourage you to attend in-person!
