Fellow Researchers and Friends of Institutional Research


Plotting the Course: Showing the Way to Institutional Success” is the theme of the CAIR 2017 Conference. This year’s conference will showcase many outstanding presentations from all segments of higher education as well as professional development workshops aimed to expand your skill set and increase your knowledge on the latest trends in the field of institutional research. The conference is a perfect opportunity to network with fellow colleagues, hear from professionals in the field, and learn about the latest services and software available to IR. Whatever your reason, CAIR is a must attend event for IR professionals.

Students are Encouraged to Attend

CAIR offers a special discounted price of $100 for students who are not employed full-time. If you qualify for the student rate, please contact Jessica Luedtke at jluedtke@sdccd.edu to provide proof of student status.

Conference Payment

Most payments are made through Eventbrite for immediate registration processing.

Check payments are accepted; however, conference registrations paid by check are non-refundable and non-transferrable. Upon receipt of payment, CAIR will register the attendee. An email message will be sent to the attendee to confirm the conference registration, so if you do not receive an email confirmation your check payment has not been received by CAIR! All check payments must be received by September 10, 2017 for the early bird rate, so please start your procurement process early enough. If you are paying by check after the early bird rate ends on September 10th, you should plan on making sure it would arrive at CAIR before November. If it is not likely to get processed and arrive by the beginning of November, please bring the check in person to the CAIR registration desk and register on site. Please follow this link to access and download the paper registration form.

Cancellations and Refunds

Requests for refunds must be made in writing and directed to CAIR’s treasurer (treasurer@cair.org) by October 4th, 2017. The attendee will not be refunded any processing fees associated with EventBrite. No refunds will be made after that date except in cases involving the death or serious illness/injury of the conference registrant or an immediate family member, or in cases that are in the best interest of the California Association for Institutional Research.

Hotel Reservations

CAIR has reserved a block of rooms at the Hilton Concord Hotel at the discounted rate of $159 per night.  The link to the discounted hotel reservation page will be provided upon completion of the conference registration process. Hotel reservations using the CAIR discounted rate must be occupied by conference registrants. CAIR reserves the right to cancel hotel reservations if there is no associated conference registration.
