Registration:
For anyone who needs a paper version of the rates/a registration form they can submit to their accounts payable, the link above goes to a downloadable pdf version of the full registration form.

For those who are registering online, please take your time and follow the directions step by step. Of special note is section 1 when you get to Program Items. That area scrolls and you need to add each meeting you are interested in attending to you cart. It goes in chronological order so the Annual Meeting is the last option listed. Once you click add, it will show a yellow box that reads “In Itinerary” in that section. Please also note that it will not let you add an item in the following sections if you have not selected the correct overarching event (for example, you cannot select a learning lunch if you have not also selected the postgraduate course.) 

In section 6, the Additional Events section, is where you will find the 5K and tickets for additional people you would like to bring to the Social Event. Everyone registered for the Annual Meeting is automatically registered for the Social Event as part of that registration. 

Please make sure you are logged into the site so the correct rates show for your member type. 

If you run into any issues, we are happy to help. Please call 215-641-9800.
