IGHR 2017 Evening Classes
Evening sessions will be Monday through Wednesday evenings from 7:00 p.m. – 8:15 p.m. at the University of Georgia Center for Continuing Education. These classes are open to the public for a fee of $15.00 per person. Registration is required. Deadline to register for the evening sessions is 17 July 2017 and to be guaranteed a handout. Cash and credit cards will be accepted at the door but you will not be guaranteed a handout.
IGHR has traditionally offered additional educational options to its attendees in the evenings after their regular coursework. Because IGHR is now in a conference facility with ample space for evening sessions, we want to make these special sessions available to the general public for a nominal fee. People who are registered for IGHR should not register for these sessions as they are included in your tuition.
