Conference Registration Fees

We have two new ways to save money on registration fees!

Important: The two discounts can’t be combined. Read all the information before making your selection in the conference registration form.

50% Referral Rebate

If you get two new people to sign up for the 2018 conference, we’ll refund 50% of your conference registration (excluding workshop, single-day fees, extra lunches, etc). To qualify, these newbies must be first-time attendees or have not attended the conference in 2017 or 2018.

To receive the rebate, tell your attendee to include your name where indicated in the conference registration, and we’ll automatically refund half your conference registration!

No-Cancellation Discount

We know you can’t always plan ahead to receive the early-bird discount, so we’re offering another way to save: trade your ability to cancel for a discount! After the early bird registration period, members and non-members can pay a discounted rate for agreeing that they will not receive any refund in case of cancellation. The regular rate still includes a generous cancellation policy.

For registration fees that aren’t purchased at the No-Cancellation discount rate:

  • Cancellations prior to June 16, 2019, are refunded 100%.
  • Cancellations after June 16, 2019, are credited to next year’s conference, less the price of meals.
  • If you register using a discounted no-cancellation rate, no refunds will be made regardless of when you cancel.
