Registration Closed

CRC 2014 is just days away!  We’ve had an overwhelming response to the technical sessions being offered, and as such have “technically” closed online registration.  For those of you still interested in attending the Region VI CRC, please contact for openings, or be ready to register the day of the event.

The weather looks to be improving for the weekend, so keep your fingers crossed for dry weather at the Welcome Party and in downtown Iowa City!

See you Thursday,

Looking past the CRC, the Cedar Valley Chapter will be hosting meetings throughout the summer for planning purposes and to do post CRC wrap-up work.
