1. What does the registration fee include?
The registration fee includes the Summit program app, Summit materials, access to sessions, tracking of your attendance at sessions, continental breakfasts, and lunches.
2. Why is the Summit a four-day event?
The Summit has been structured to offer a significant number of opportunities to educators for certificate renewal, opportunities that include Educators in Industry courses. However, due to the quality of the programming and following extensive review by the SCDE’s Office of Educator Quality, the entire event has been approved as a certificate renewal experience. Hundreds of educators are attending the Summit annually to support renewal of their certificates. These attendees track their attendance each year using the personalized scan cards provided at registration. Our commitment to these educators is that they will have available to them enough opportunities to track renewal units of credit to support renewal of their certificates.
3. Is there a one-day or partial registration fee for the Summit if I plan to attend only a portion of the event?
No, there is not a partial registration fee or daily rate for the Summit. The Summit registration fee is already among the lowest nationwide for events of this magnitude offering the variety in programming and credential renewal options.
4. Is the Education and Business Summit only for career and technology education (CTE) educators?
No. Programming at the Education + Business Summit, now one of the nation’s largest state conferences, certainly does serve CTE educators and administrators. All guidance staff, administrators, core academic instructors, CTE instructors, and business partners are among those categories of individuals for whom programming is provided. Post-secondary staff and leadership are also very much included in the scope of possible attendees, and programming exists for those audiences as well.
6. Can I replace/substitute my registration with another person’s name if circumstances prohibit my attending the Summit once I have registered?
Yes. Complete the substitution form.
7. Is it possible to get a refund once I have registered and paid my Summit registration fee?
