The RP Group


Register for the 2019 Strengthening Student Success Conference



Main conference participants from RP Group member* institutions


Main conference participant non-member institutions


Main conference presenter rate 


If you submitted a proposal to present at this year’s conference, please wait to register until you receive notification of the status of your proposal on May 3rd. All presenters on accepted sessions will receive a presenter link to register at a discounted rate.

Each year, our post-conference workshops are held on the final day of the event. There is a separate registration fee for attending a post-conference workshop, and you can register to attend a post-conference workshop only or in addition to the main conference. Sessions last five hours and participants choose one workshop. Register for a post-conference workshop.

For those registering groups/teams, all registrations must include an individual’s name and contact information. Placeholder registrations will not be allowed (e.g. registrant name listed as “Participant 1”) and will be deleted with an email notification sent to the email address of the person who made the registration.

Registration transfers are allowed and may be made by the registrant (or the person who originally made the registration) directly in our registration system at any time without an additional fee. You may also contact Shannon Qualls at MeetingWise, LLC to help you with a transfer.

We know that colleges and districts do not always have enough professional development funds available to pay for everyone who would like to attend conferences. To this end, we are offering a first-come, first-served opportunity to attend our conference for free to those who would like to serve as room hosts. Read the list of room host responsibilities. If, after reading the responsibilities, you are interested in being a room host, please contact Tracy Newell at MeetingWise, LLC. If you are interested in pursuing this option, do NOT register for the conference.
