IMPORTANT NOTICE TO TEACHERS: This online UNC event registration process requires you to submit individual email addresses for your students as you register them for their sessions. This system will also send each student automatic emails with event confirmation. Zoom links and passcodes, however, will be sent separately from the NCSMA office.
