Due to the need for the venue to have counts for their planning, advance registration for the Conference will close on Tuesday, March 6, 2012. Electronic and faxed registrations must be submitted by then. Mail registrations must be received by then, which means it is too late to mail registrations in from a distance, but those postmarked by Saturday, March 3 from fairly near by to Washington, DC should be OK.
There should be some opportunity for walk-in registration at the Conference, provided the numbers are small. Also, if you didn’t reserve meals in advance, you may get meal tickets from the Center front desk, again as long as the numbers are not large as they need to ensure there is adequate food for all registrants. Credit cards will not be accepted for either walk-in registration or meal tickets from the Center. Please have cash or checks. For registrations, you may also use your computer on-site (free wi-fi throughout the Center) to transfer funds to us via PayPal.
As far as group participation, the Conference program has been sent to the printer so no more ads can be accepted for it. Inserts (80 copies needed) in conference packets should be received by the Conference Coordinator by Monday, March 5. Exhibit tables are also still available at this writing.
