RCIO Conference Registration

Registration for RCIO 2018 is now open and will remain open until the day of the conference. Registration fees for RCIO 2018 are $40 for students and $80 for professionals.

Beginning with RCIO 2018, we are pleased to offer 4 SHRM Continuing Education Units (CEUs) managed through UTC's Center for Professional Education. The registration rate for professionals seeking this CEU option is $100. Standard CE rules will apply to any conference attendees pursuing this option (i.e., sign-in at beginning and end of the conference, completion of an extra evaluation, etc.). All of these details will be shared with all CE-seeking registrants by the time of the conference.

Please note the following important points applicable to all registrants:

  1. To avoid complications with processing your registration, payment is due at the time you are completing your online registration (by credit card is easiest).
  2. If you are registering for a group, you should call the UTC Center for Professional Education directly (at 423-425-4344) to process this type of batch registration more easily.

The different registration options this year require different registration pathways. Please select the option below that best fits your situation and carefully follow all instructions:

  1. Chose the registration link below that best fits your situation:
  2. If you have registered before for any class or program offered at UTC through our Center for Professional Development (including a previous RCIO event), you may already have a login.
