New and Improved Online Registration!
Please follow these instructions to assure a simple and accurate registration process. Online registration opens August 1. Early bird registration ends October 15.
At the bottom of this page, follow the prompt "register for this event" and proceed page-by-page, supplying all requested information, to the checkout, at which point you may pay by credit card, or select “bill me” and create an invoice.
On the second page, you are asked to provide badge information. Please use the “Special Instructions” to note special dietary or other needs. Select your region from the drop down menu, remembering that NOA and NATS regions are the same.
THE LUNCHEON, THE CABARET AND THE BANQUET ARE TICKETED SESSIONS. RESERVATIONS ARE MANDATORY EVEN IF THEY ARE INCLUDED IN YOUR REGISTRATION CHOICE! As you proceed through the registration process, you will be given the option to select the sessions you want. If you fail to reserve a ticket, you will not be able to eat. YOU MUST CHECK THE BOX ON THE LEFT and, if there are price options, be sure the correct button is darkened. Some daily registration options do not include the meals so an additional fee is required if the meals are desired.
INDIVIDUAL REGISTRATIONS: Simply choose the appropriate registration fee, and proceed.
If you are a current active member and wish to pay your 2014 dues with your registration, please go back to shopping and add membership to your cart.
If you are not a member, or your membership is inactive, you will be offered non-member rates, which includes membership for 2014.
Daily registrants will find various packages for multiple days. Please pay attention to the “AND/OR” prompts. If your choice includes Friday OR Saturday, please indicate which in the special instructions. Luncheon is included for Thursday registrants, but must be reserved by selecting the check box on the left of the session. Friday, Saturday and Student daily rates DO NOT include ticketed sessions, but they can be purchased separately.
PARTNER/SPOUSE REGISTRATION: Partners and spouses will register as guests of the full registrant and have two registration options. Please select the appropriate one for your circumstances. First, select your registration rate and your own session selections, then select add guest when prompted. You will add your partner/spouse registration option and sessions once you select to register a guest.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->1. <!--[endif]-->Partner/spouses who plan to be full convention participants should register choosing the “partner/spouse” rate. Ticketed sessions are included in this rate. When reserving the session, check the box on the left to reserve the session and select the $0.00 option button to the right to incur the correct charge, and proceed to complete the registration.
<!--[if !supportLists]-->2. <!--[endif]-->If your partner/spouse does not wish to attend general sessions and only wishes to participate in ticketed sessions, select “partner/spouse meals only” ($0.00) registration option. After supplying badge information, select desired ticketed event(s) by checking the box on the left and select the guest fee button for that event. You will be billed for only the items you select. Please note that if you plan to purchase all three ticketed sessions, you should use the 1st option to save $35.00.
Partners and spouses can also register individually using the “partner/spouse” rate. In this case, indicate in the special instructions the name of the full registrant associated with the registration. This will be a useful option if a partner/spouse decides to join after the other person has already registered.
NEW AND IMPROVED GROUP REGISTRATION Registrants who are bringing students and paying for them in a single transaction may register the students as guests. Please start your registration, and when asked about guests, select the number up to 10, from the drop down menu. You will be asked to provide badge information for each student. Please be sure to include the school affiliation and in “special instructions,” any dietary needs. On the next page, select the student rate for each student. (You may use the daily rate if appropriate or necessary for a particular student, but remember that no meals are included.) When presented with the ticketed sessions, you must check the session on the left, and then select the “student registrant” button to enter $0.00 for the event. Once all students are registered, proceed to check out.
If students are paying separately, please have them register individually.
If student registrants must be billed separately from the sponsoring faculty, the faculty member should register individually. A second registration may be completed as above, except the first student will be the main registrant and the other students will be the guests. This strategy will also work if a faculty member is bringing more than 10 students.
We must ask that faculty/staff collaborative pianists register as full participants, or by using one of the daily options. Student accompanists are, of course, students.
Please make every effort to complete GROUP registrations prior to December 20, 2013.
ALL REGISTRATION CLOSES JANUARY 3, 2014. After that date, registration will have to be completed on site.
Please see location information for HOTEL rates and reservation information.
