Frequently Asked Questions
I would like to bring my school’s newly elected officials for 2019 but would like to take advantage of the discounted conference registration rates. Is this possible?
Absolutely! If your school has elections prior to COSGA 2019 and would like to register before you know who your newly elected officials will be, we ask that you reach out to us to let us know. You will be required to submit the participant information form for every registered attendee by March 1st, 2019. We will not accept name changes after this deadline.
