18th Annual Networking and Educational Forum
Please follow these tips for a successful registration for the IACP Forum in Philadelphia
People are having problems registering for the Forum. A funny thing happened this year on the way to the Forum, there is another group with the initials “IACP” holding a conference at the same hotel the week after ours! This is confusing people and we would like to make a few suggestions so that your registration goes smoothly.
First, please be sure you are on the correct website – www.collaborativepractice.com. If you Google IACP you might not reach the right place. And, please follow directions carefully. If you have registered for previous Forums, this time is different. You must check off your Forum registration before the Pre-Forum Institutes come up. And, be sure to be thorough in making your workshop selections. Check carefully before moving on to the next step.
