Online registration is currently closed. WE WILL BE ACCEPTING REGISTRATION AT-THE-DOOR on a first-come, first served for any remaining classes.
Please check out our “At the door” registration form above. You can print, choose your classes, and take with you to registration to save time. This form shows the classes with space still available. Again, these classes are available first-come, first served until a classroom is filled. Classes in gray on the form have enough space that we do not expect them to fill that day. Classes in white may fill as people register that morning.
Registration opens at 7:30 AM. After you register, check out the coffee, tea and pastries in the cafeteria! You can also visit the trade show before classes begin at 9 AM. You will likely need at least 15 minutes to find your class, so if you’re registering at the door, we suggest arriving by 8:30 or earlier.
For those who have not yet paid, please bring your payment to the door, rather than mailing a check as we may not receive it before the expo.
Those registering or paying at the door can pay with cash, check or card.
On-line registrants will receive a confirmation e-mail after completing online registration from firstname.lastname@example.org. This e-mail will list all the registration information entered.
For those who pay by check, or register completely by mail, when registration AND payment is received, attendee will receive a confirmation e-mail from email@example.com. This e-mail will confirm received payment only. Please allow several days, as volume of registration received may delay confirmation e-mails.
Attendees can transfer their registration payment to another person at any time before the Expo or on the day of the Expo. That person can take the same classes, or register for any classes still available.
Otherwise, attendees may, upon request, receive a refund equal to half their purchase price before January 1. After January 1, no refunds are available.
