The registration system allows for modification of registration information throughout the process, including adding members to your group, transferring registrations to other attendees, changing options, etc. Multiple payment options are offered including credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover), Wire Transfer (instructions provided when option is selected), and Invoice for later payment(print your own, or have it sent via email).


Registrants have the option of paying in full at the time of registration or paying a 40%. Final payment for all registrations is due by April 30. Registrations will continue to be accepted after April 30, but full payment will be required at the time of registration. Fees will also increase at that time. Those who started a registration before April 30 who do not pay in full by that date, will face late payment penalties.


More options and workshops will be added in the USA spring.


Updates will continue to arrive as available.
