Build and Bring Your Team to the 2006 Symposium! Team-building activities help develop relationships between agencies and individuals that are planning justice and public safety information sharing initiatives. For agencies and jurisdictions already in the process, team building will help you gain knowledge, share experiences, identify resources, network with colleagues, develop solutions and collaborate with key stakeholders.
Teams attending the 2006 Symposium have access to team meeting areas, and to tools that will aid your team in working through specific issues related to strategic planning and systems implementation. At our 2004 Symposium, agency teams from 46 states and the District of Columbia, ranging in size from 4 to 24 members attended. International teams from Belgium, Canada, Guam, Italy, the Northern Mariana Islands, Norway, South Africa, England and Wales attended as well.
How Team Registration Works
- First, select a Team Leader. The Team Leader must completely fill out the Symposium Registration Form and indicate in the appropriate space that he or she is the designated Team Leader. Payment for the Team Leader's registration fee must accompany the registration form. NOTE: This step MUST be completed before the other team members can register. Payment options include credit card, purchase order or check. All check and purchase order payments must be postmarked by Friday, February 10, 2006.
- Each of the three (or more) additional team members must also complete a registration form and pay their own registration fees. Team members must identify themselves as part of a team by using the Team Leader's full name on the registration form.
- There is no limit to the number of individuals who can register for your team. To qualify for the discounted rate, additional team members need only submit a registration form and payment online, or via mail or fax. Please note that if additional team members fail to register for the Symposium as part of your team, you will be responsible for paying the balance of your individual registration fee.
Frequently Asked Questions About Teams Must all registrants on my team come from a single agency?
No. Team registration is designed to encourage multi-agency participation with group discounts. We encourage registrants to invite representatives from other justice agencies to join their team.
Can I pay for all four (or more) registrations with a single credit card, check or purchase order?
No. A separate registration form with payment must be completed for each team member. Each team member may register online or via mail or fax, but will need to provide their Team Leader's full name at the designated place on the registration form in order to receive the team discount. Team members may pay via credit card, check or purchase order. All check and purchase order payments must be postmarked by Friday, February 10, 2006.
Is there a limit to how many members may be added to a team?
No. Once you have chosen a Team Leader and they've registered, you may add as many members as you like. But you MUST include the Team Leader's full name on each registration.
Can I change members of my team after the registration forms have been submitted?
Yes. Registration may be transferred to a member of your agency/institution and must be received in writing via email to Laura DeOrio, Events Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to March 6, 2006.
