    Summer Workshop and New Deans Institute Registration is Now Closed!


    All available spaces for the 2019 Summer Workshop and New Deans Institute have been filled and we are regrettably forced to close registration effective June 5, 2019. Registrations postmarked by June 5, 2019 will be honored.


    If you had planned to register for this meeting, you are welcome to fax (202-461-3895) or email ( your registration form and we will put your name on a waitlist. We will contact you in the event that a cancellation occurs. We deeply regret any inconvenience. If you have previously registered and your plans change, please contact us immediately to cancel your registration. Please note, no refunds will be honored after June 25.


    Attendance at the CGS Summer Workshop and New Deans Institute has risen in the last several years. The Workshop and NDI are envisioned as smaller, less formal meetings to encourage more interaction among attendees and, as a result, we have limited attendance to 275. The CGS 2019 Annual Meeting in Nashville has a much greater capacity and we have planned for attendance in excess of 700. If you have been unable to register for this meeting, we hope you will join us in Nashville for what we know will be an exciting and rich agenda. Online registration for the Annual Meeting will begin in August; but we urge you to fax in your registration for the Summer Workshop. We maintain a very careful waitlist.
