2018 Conference Registration Tips

First Steps

You must log in to the member portal in order to register.

After you log in, you will need to select a registration fee based on the number of days you plan to attend the conference. Please note that the member price (including any Early Bird discounts) will automatically be applied. If you receive the non-member price, it could be that your institution’s membership has lapsed. Please contact us at or (610) 708-3010 with any questions.

Non-members need to create an account before registering.

Your registration fee covers many aspects of the conference (more details available throughout the registration process). Additional fees apply only to optional events (i.e. Tours, Workshops, etc.) and to bring a guest to these optional events.  Be sure to select these options during registration if you or your guest wish to attend.

Make sure to answer our initial questions (as well as for your guest if applicable) at the start of the registration process. These questions help us better understand your needs and meet them onsite.


Registration Options

Register Myself:

Select this option to register yourself.

Register Someone Else:

Select this option to sign up a colleague who is planning to attend the conference. He or she will be charged the full registration fee. Office managers, administrators, and/ or assistants managing registrations for other staff should log in as themselves and use this option.

+ Add a guest:

Select this option to register a guest only. Please note that guests may not attend conference sessions. If a guest wishes to attend sessions, he or she must sign up as an attendee and pay the registration fee accordingly This category is often reserved for a spouse/partner, board member, or colleague accompanying an attendee to an optional function such as a tour or reception.
