2011 Winter Meeting, Virtual Meeting On-line
February 10-11, 2011
ABOUT: The Administrative Codes and Registers Section will hold an on-line meeting in February instead of traveling to Washington, D.C. for the 2011 Winter Meeting. Because of the extreme economic circumstances facing most of the states, only a small number of ACR members could attend the planned face-to-face meeting. To remedy the small attendance numbers, ACR has arranged to use a “virtual classroom” for the on-line meeting, which will be held on February 10 and 11, 2011.
~ CONFERENCE REGISTRATION ~
CLOSED for Feburary 10, 2011
CLOSED for February 11, 2011
To register for the on-line meeting, please download the registration form (pdf) found on this web page and fill it out electronically.

CONFERENCE FEE: Please note that there will be no charge to attend the on-line meeting.

Authentication (the MD5 Hash)
The Utah Division of Administrative Rules has generated an MD5 hash for the PDF files (files saved with an “.PDF” extension) and the compressed WordPerfect files (1996 and 1997 only; files saved with a “.zip” extension) that can be downloaded from this web page. An MD5 hash is, in essence, a signature for a file. You can confirm the integrity of the files you download by comparing the MD5 hash the Division has posted with one that you generate. Various software packages are available that permit you to generate an MD5 hash such as MD5Summer (graphical user interface), winMD5Sum (graphical user interface), MD5SUMS (no graphical user interface), or File Checksum Integrity Verifier (no graphical user interface). If the hashes do not match exactly, then the integrity of the file is in question. Please contact the Division of Administrative Rules immediately if the hash numbers do not match.
