Please Note: You must have also registered to attend the Compostmodern conference in order to attend the workshops.
Workshops are open to all attendees of CM 09, on a first-come first served basis. They will be held during the CM 09 lunch break between 12:15 and 1:30 PM. You can only attend one workshop. We will provide lunch.
You will find the Workshop Room on the second floor, next to the Green Room of the Herbst Theatre. Signage will direct you to the correct room. Your lunches will be provided.
Because attendees will not have time to go out, we will provide a boxed lunch for each person. Please make your selection when registering from the following:
