How to register: 

  1. Register and Pay Online: 
    Online registration is open during the registration dates shown above. When open, use the blue 'Register Online' button to submit your registration and pay online using our secure checkout process. This is our preferred choice as it allows us to manage the registrations and payment much more easily. 
  2. Register Online, then Pay By Mail, Phone, or at the Conference: 
    Register during the open registration dates using the blue Register Online button. During the checkout process - simply select the option to Pay By Mail/Phone, or Pay At The Door.  If you prefer to phone-in, mail, or pay at the door - by registering online you help us plan the necessary conference accommodations, make namebadges in advance, coordinate seating and meals based on the number of members and guests registered in advance.
  3. Just show up: 
    Last minute attendees are always welcome at the door.  (Limited lunches and choices available).  While we prefer the online process so we can plan based on the number of people registering, we'll always have a door registration person at the conference and welcome walk ins.

Our online registration process has changed. So if you have any difficulty registering online, please use our Contact Us form. We'll be happy to help you register, and see if we need to tweak things to make it easier for everyone! 

We look forward to seeing you at the conference!
