Walk-through of Registration
  1. Start by entering your email address. When you have finished registering, a confirmation email will be sent to this address.
  2. Choose if you are a Conference Member, a Non-voting Guest, a Conference Member Exhibitor, or a Non-Voting Exhibitor. Registration prices include meals. All persons staffing an exhibit table must be registered either as a Conference Member Exhibitor as a Non-Voting Exhibitor.
  3. On the following pages, you will enter all information for the individual you are currently registering.
    • Exhibitors must choose if they are with an “Affliated” or “Non-affiliated” organization.
    • Members must enter their Membership type, their district, and their Church on the “membership information” tab. The drop-down menu for “church” will appear after you have selected your district.
  4. On the Agenda page, please note if you will be attending the Clergy or the Laity Session on Thursday morning. If you are a non-voting attendee paying the per-day price, this is where you will chose the number of days you are attending.
  5. On the Options page, exhibitors must fill out all information about their organization.
    • The first registrant in a group must enter the number of tables they would like to reserve. All additional attendees will not be shown the option to reserve tables. You must begin a new exhibitor registration to reserve tables for a second group.
    • All registrants will also be given the option to donate an amount of their choice to help offset the registration cost for non-appointed, retired clergy members who have requested financial aid.
  6. The final page will ask if you will be registering any additional attendees. If you click ‘yes’ then you will return to the beginning to register another person. If you click ‘no’, then you will be taken to the payment page to pay for all attendees in your group.
  7. On the payment page, you have the option to pay by credit card or by check. If you choose "check" please note that you must still click the "Make Payment" button at the bottom of the page in order for your registration to be submitted.
    • Once we have received your check, you will receive a second email confirmation letting you know that your payment has been received and processed.
