*Sent to University Ag Ed & College Ag Faculty & IAVAT

Hi College/University Ag and IAVAT Leaders:

click to register

I have these 17 students registered for the Ag Ed STAR Bus Trip. Please register yourself and your students ASAP as I need to be finalizing the hotel rooms.  Besides myself, I do not have any other adult chaperones.  I will contact the students via email to have them let me know who they would like to room with. I would like to know by Monday, September 19th, the minimum attending.  We should still be able to add more students all the way up to the day of the event as the hotel has plenty of rooms at this time.   That in mind, please do not wait until the last minute to register.
