1. REGISTRATION

Registration – Everyone attending the conference is required to complete an official registration form. Individuals not presenting a paper or chairing a session may either pre-register or register on site. All conference participants who are giving papers or chairing sessions, however, must pre-register. THE PRE-REGISTRATION DEADLINE IS APRIL 15, 2011. One form is to be filled out for each person; photocopies are acceptable. Before February 1, the member registration fee is $180, and $50 for a spouse or guest. After February 1st, the member registration fee is $250, and $50 for a spouse or guest. At the Congress, the member registration fee is $350, and $50 for a spouse or guest. REGISTRATION FEES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE. (US currency only.)

NOTE: The $50 fee is for a companion who will not be attending the sessions but who will be attending the evening social events and/or a tour (for which tickets are required). These guests will receive a name badge. They will receive tickets (if applicable) in their companion's full registration packet. Please, when registering, list those others who will be attending with you.

Registrants must pay in US dollars and are urged to use a US bank so as to avoid exorbitant bank fees.  Registrants who wish to pay with a check drawn on a foreign bank may do so, but must add $8 to the total to cover bank fees.
