Segmented Symposium

Registrations are looking good for the upcoming symposium in October. Registrations can be made online so get yours in as soon as possible if you are planning to attend. You can register until September 15th and receive a $50 discount. After that date the registration will be $300.

If you’re the spouse of a segmented turner attending the symposium and want to attend all the sessions, there is a new $150 spouse option available on the online registration form. This admission will offer all the same items of the full price admission including attendance at the Saturday night banquet.

Also, there are two scholarships available for Chapter members that may not have the resources to attend. See our prior post.

You can get all the information in the Symposium Brochure.
