Business Casual to Business.

Continuing education points will be awarded by ATA, CCHI, and NCAOC. Certificates are delivered electronically, so it is very important that we receive your correct email address during registration.

Whatever you prefer to take notes - pen and paper, notebook, tablet. 
Event schedule either on your tablet, notebook, phone, or printed out.
Business cards (not required, but useful). 

A good idea, along with ticket from Eventbrite (printed or in email).
Photo ID is required for the ATA exam on Sunday. All exam takers receive detailed information from ATA on what they need to do. Exam takers should refer to their information packet from ATA and read it carefully.


Random uncertainty: 
Feel free to ask any Board members for help (see their badges). Also, CATI members are friendly.

BOOK SWAP at the Annual CATI Conference:


Clean out your bookshelves—bring books to the conference that you’re ready to pass on, and pick up some new (used) books. Bring dictionaries, books about language, books in foreign languages, books you think people in our industry would like to read, magazines, other media—non-fiction and fiction welcome.

We’ll have a table at the conference where you can leave your contributions and browse through the offerings. All free!

Everyone must have at least one dictionary they’re not using anymore. This is your chance to swap it for something else. All leftover books will be donated to a good cause (friends of the library or other).
