On-site Registration: $50 (paid separately)
Wednesday only: register 8 a.m.–3 p.m. in the foyer of Convention Center Room 204.

This $50 registration must be paid separately and cannot be paid for with a purchase order.
Learn More about the TI:ME Technology Preconference
Technology sessions during the Thursday–Saturday convention schedule are available to all registrants at no extra charge.
Family members: $10
Family members of registered attendees are welcome to attend as long as they are not also music educators, musicians, or college music students (for children under 12, family badges are free and available if the child is present at registration). Family badges can be purchased for $10 each on-site at the convention (family member must be present). Pre-purchased family badges are non-refundable (if unused, distributed to the TMEA scholarship fund). On-site purchase must be by a TMEA member who has completed registration. No CPE credit will be given for individuals with family badges; family badges also do not provide priority access to the All-State concerts (if seating is available, attendees with family badges can enter 10 minutes prior to the concert).
