How to Choose or Change your Continuous Learning Choices

You can choose your preferred Continuous Learning sessions on our Registration page. It is best to register early as many of the CL sessions fill up fast. There will be a waitlist available and you will be sent an email should your CL session become available. Once you’re registered you will get an email confirming your registration and can use that email to log back in with your confirmation email and make changes.

You may also register at the Information Desk on registration day, July 29, 2018. Please note there may not be a lot of choices if you wait to register at the Congress. Class sizes will be limited to a certain number.

Can I Book Workshops in Advance?

There is no need to book afternoon workshops. You can just turn up. However, most workshops will be limited to 20-25 participants. Once the room is ‘full’ you will need to choose another workshop to attend that day. We recommend that you arrive early, to avoid disappointment.

How to Register a Group/Guest

On our Registration page, you are able to add other participants to your registration page. It will ask you if you want to register another person. You will also be able to choose their CL sessions for them, so have them ready.

How do I Share Accommodations with Another Person?

Loyola University (LU) is doing all of our registering for the accommodations. Go to our registration tab to click on their registration page. Unfortunately, if you are staying in a double room you will need to have all the registration information for your roommate. The LU system will only accept one credit card.

This means that your roommate will have to send you money by check, PayPal or other means. We are sorry for this inconvenience but this is how their registration website page is set up for all of their groups that come to do an event at LU.

How do I Book Extra Nights’ Accommodation Before the Congress?

Interested in coming early? Want to stay at Loyola University campus and talk advantage of their great rates? Once you book your 6 night for the Congress you can call them directly to add an extra night or two. If you want to stay after the Congress ends you will need to book your own accommodations as LU closes down in order to get ready for their Fall semester.
