Registration Information

Meeting registration information will be available later this year.  Please check back later.

If you are planning to attend the National Meeting, we ask that you pre-register (online or by using the paper registration form).  We strongly discourage on-site registrations. Attendees who pre-register will receive a confirmation -- including a credit card receipt if that is the form of payment -- usually within about two weeks of submitting your registration.  If you register online, the system will generate an automatic acknowledgement of your submission.

There is just one general registration for all attendees, regardless of the session(s) you plan to attend.  Once we receive your form, a confirmation (and credit card receipt, if applicable) will be sent to you by regular mail.

Specific registration rates will be announced soon.
