The countdown is on.
It’s hard to believe the Catholic Education: A National Conversation Conference is only weeks away.
With a theme of Nurturing the Seed, this year’s conference will build on the groundwork laid in 2008’s initial conference, and will be held in Ottawa from Sept. 22-24, 2011.
As we draw closer to the conference weekend, CCSTA wants to ensure our delegates are well informed and have all the answers to their questions. We have outlined a series of answers to common questions we receive about the conference.

What if I want to register a group?
An organization may wish to complete the registrations for all attendees. Email a spreadsheet with email address, last name and first name of the participants to Lorrie Palmer at Accounts will be set up and temporary passwords will be issued for the names on the sheet. The spreadsheet will be returned to you so you can register the names on the spreadsheet. For further information contact Lorrie Palmer at 613-354-6257, ext. 435.
Where is the conference location?
The conference will be hosted at the Ottawa Marriott Hotel on Kent St. It’s the perfect location as participants can stay at the hotel as well as use the opportunity to discover beautiful downtown Ottawa as well.
Does Registration Include my hotel accommodation at the Marriott?
No. Participants are responsible for booking their own accommodation. If they wish to take advantage of the special conference rate at the Marriott, they must book by August 21, 2011.
I would like to be a conference vendor. How do I book?
The Conference committee plans to establish a vendor exhibit area, with dedicated time in the program for visitation by delegates. You may wish to host a standard vendor display booth at a sponsorship level of $500, or alternatively, host an event such as a reception, nutrition break, or breakfast during the conference. You may fill out an application form and submit it to CCSTA: www.alcdsb.on.ca/ccsta_conference2011/english/VendorSponsorRegistrationForm0411.pdf
I’d like to bring my spouse to Ottawa with me. What can they do while I attend the conference?
