Each group leader is responsible for the arrival of their group members to the University of Tennessee campus. Registration will begin promptly at 11:00 a.m., but some rooms may not be available until 3:00 p.m. due to occupancy the previous night. Registration will remain open until all groups have arrived
Groups will receive notification of their housing assignments and other final details to prepare for the trip in their confirmation packets, mailed by the University of Tennessee in late June, 2009. If your group has not received its final confirmation packet by July 1, 2009, please contact UT Conferences at 865-974-0280 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org (please list CHIC 2009 in the subject line).
When your group arrives at the University of Tennessee campus, students and counselors should head directly to your assigned housing location while the group leader reports to the registration tables in the lobby of their assigned housing. Please send only one group leader to the registration desk. When the group leader registers the group, specific rooms will be assigned.
Dinner will be available from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. in the campus dining halls.
