Registration

Advance Registration (online) will open before the meeting.

A spreadsheet will be posted here to calculate approximate meeting and registration costs.

In order to obtain the “advance registration” discounted registration cost, you must pre-pay using a credit card before Advance Registration closes.  Otherwise, you will pay the onsite registration cost.

We encourage you to register on-line even if you do not plan to pay with a credit card. The option to register and mail a check or to pay on-site with cash or check is also available with on-line registration.
Online meeting registration can be used by everyone, both members and guests, and will speed registration for everyone.  Pre-registration will save you time and hassle when you arrive, as your name tag will be ready and waiting for you.

Effective with the Fall 2018 Meeting, advance payment will be required to get the advance registration rate.  Advance payment can be made by Credit Card through the registration system, or by mailing a check to the Membership Secretary.
Please note our new policy on refunds.
For those that cannot register online for any reason, an offline registration form will be posted.
