Most members register prior to the convention date. For those who have not had this opportunity, tickets will be sold at the conference check-in area at the La Crosse Center’s NORTH Entrance. Session availability is not guaranteed. Admission is $15/advance of the conference (must register by February 15, 2017) or $20/day of. Registration varies by districts. Some districts register each teacher and paraprofessional automatically. In others, the school’s education association forwards the conference fee, or building’s association reps collect personal checks from those attending. In other cases, educators take care of their own registrations. If you’re not sure about your school’s procedures, ask your principal or building association representative.
Conference information including the break out session schedules and descriptions are available at www.wweconference.com. Conference books are longer being printed in an effort to “go green.”
Students/Student Teachers/Paraprofessionals: Conference registration for students, student teachers and paraprofessional is the same as teacher and other attendees. Admission is $15/advance of the conference (must register by February 15, 2017) or $20/day of.
Retired Teachers: Retired teachers are admitted to the conference free of charge. Retired teachers who are members of CRUE Retired will be printed on a list provided to the ticket gate workers at the conference.

Other retired teachers may get a lifetime conference member pass by writing the conference coordinator.
