Guests, including spouses and partners of Kuali Days registrants, are welcome to attend the Tuesday evening opening reception on 2/18 from 6 PM to 8 PM at no additional cost. Kuali Days registrants
will receive three (3) drink tickets redeemable for soda or cocktails, however, spouse/partners who join registrants at the opening reception will not be provided with drink tickets. A cash bar will be available.
Aside from the opening reception, the conference is intended for our Kuali community to learn together and build relationships. Kuali Days breakfasts, luncheons, and sessions, will be exclusively for registrants.
