Step 1: Select Register Myself or Register a Guest or Colleague. Note - If registering a guest or colleague, please use the search bar to find them, before creating a new guest.

Step 2: Click the blue "More" icon to see a description of the session.

Step 3: Make your selections and click Next. The next screen will show your selections. Once you have reached the checkout screen, you will have the option to add or edit additional registrations BEFORE submitting your order.

Step 4Only use your email address for your own registration. Administrative Assistants -- do NOT use YOUR email address when registering someone other than yourself. In addition, you will need to provide a different email address for each guest -- you may use a placeholder email if an actual address is not available (i.e.,guestname@yourname.com -- DO NOT LITERALLY USE THIS! An example of what to use: janesmith@johnsmith.com. We will then know who the guest (Jane Smith) belongs to (John Smith). Plus it provides a UNIQUE email address as no one else will have janesmith@johnsmith.com (or whatever is the guest name and member name). This system utilizes the NASBA membership database and matches the record by the email address.

Step 5: Complete the payment process (you may pay by credit card or request an invoice).

Step 6: Print your invoice/receipt on the Registration Confirmation page by clicking on View Invoice/Receipt.

When selecting from the optional sessions, only choose those that you will actually attend to help us get an accurate count for meals, tours, etc. Your registration fee includes all meals and tours, but if you do not plan to attend one of the meals or tours, please do not select it.
