***Things to remember about online conference registration

Everyone has a member ID, this connects to your membership information. Do Not create a new account as this will make you pay dues again.

College Students - do not create a new account when you start teaching, you already have a member ID.

If you cannot change your password because an email is incorrect, do not create a new account. Contact Liz Fritz and she will reset your password for you.

If you have had a name change, do not create a new account, we will help you update your information.

Please contact Steve or Liz if you think you need to have account updates, cannot login, have membership dues not showing.

When you create new accounts that are not needed it creates work for at least three people (Steve, Aaron and Liz) to get the data corrected, and sometimes our web support person too!

Other things to remember...

No AMEX Cards, you can print your online form and send a check or purchase order BEFORE April 15th.

Help us help you!
