The 2019 Midwest Common Ground Conference is open to invited participants and the public. There is no fee to attend. The FTC will accept pre-registration for this conference. Pre-registration is not necessary to attend, but is encouraged so that we may better plan this event.

When you pre-register, we collect your name, title, organization, and e-mail address. We use the name and affiliation you have provided for conference administration purposes—to estimate how many people will attend, prepare nametags, and better understand the likely audience for the conference. We may also use your e-mail address to contact you with information about the conference.
