  • In an effort to provide a better experience for all of our guests, all ticket and table orders are placed online through the Council's website.  
  • Priority seating for table purchases will be given to those who submit complete registration information and payment, including the names of all attendees. Council staff will need for each registered attendee, the first and last name, the organization they will be representing, and the city, town or county in which they reside. This information should be provided by December 31, 2021 so that Council staff will have adequate time to prepare attendee name badges.
