Picking up badges
Once at the Sacramento Convention Center, go to the third floor to get your name badge. Look for the ‘Pre-Registration’ kiosk which is organized by last name. Your badge will signify any meal tickets you have purchased.
Registration hours are: Tuesday, Dec. 9, noon – 7:00 p.m.; Wednesday, Dec. 10, 7:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.; and Thursday, Dec. 11, 7:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
If you haven’t registered, go to the ‘Onsite Registration’ kiosk, also located on the third floor. Note: You can download and fill out this registration form before the conference and bring it with you.
Continuing education units (CEUs)
To take advantage of available CEU units, check in with the CEU kiosk at the beginning and end of each day. You must have your CCA or DPR identification number with you.
Note that CCAs must sign in and out of EACH SESSION. Visit the table at the back of each session room to get credit.
Show-Your-Badge restaurant discounts
Many Sacramento restaurants will offer discounts to Almond Conference attendees. A list of participating restaurants will be in your conference bag.
If you’ve pre-registered for meals, your badge will signify any meal tickets you purchased. If you are registering for your name badge on site, please check with the registration assistant for meal ticket availability.
