Conference Registration

The Annual Conference Registration Fee will be $275 per teacher and covers both the Summer and Mid-Winter Conferences.  

The GVATA Board is working on a new online registration system.  This new system will be more user friendly and more capable in handling our needs.  However, we are still waiting for it to be complete and it should be able to be launched very soon.  

In the meantime, you can use the link below to request a system invoice for all of the teachers in your system.  When requesting one school system invoice for all of the teachers in your school system, please have one teacher complete the following link for your system.  The single invoice will be emailed to all of the teachers in your system once the request has been processed.  It may take up to 3-5 days to generate an invoice.
