Advance priority registration is open until May 3rd, 2019, to individuals who fill out this 10-minute online survey about the topics you’d like to see discussed:
After that date, we will open registration to anyone who wishes to attend. There is a cap of 100 people, which would be marvelous to reach.
The survey contains a brief description of the agenda, including information about our invited plenary speaker, Dr. Fabrice Jaumont. We will be raffling off 4 copies of his book The Bilingual Revolution.
The summit organizers are especially keen on inviting dual language programs that operate in languages other than Spanish.There will be three $25 gift cards raffled to individuals who travel more than 50 miles to attend.
