Early Bird Registration

Early Bird deadline now extended to 29 May 2016.

Conference Registration Types

There are different fee bands for registration depending on whether you are already a member of Critical Link International (CLI member) or not (Non-member). You can also become a member of CLI as part of a registration package (Non-member + CLI membership) which means that you immediately become eligible for the CLI member rate, as part of the package.
Information about the benefits of CLI membership can be found here.  If you elect to sign up for CLI membership, please note that your name and email will be forwarded to Critical Link International's membership secretary and the CL8 secretariat will forward your membership dues to Critical Link International.
There are special rates for students: however, budget constraints mean that there is a limited number of student places available. First come, first served!
It is also possible to attend the conference for a single day (Day Rate).
There are special rates for sign language interpreters accompanying a Deaf person solely to provide interpreting support for a delegate or other communication support worker/carers who are attending the conference solely to support a delegate.
