Notes about Registration

  • Since it is after June 20, we cannot refund any fees for cancellations. If you cannot attend, you can send someone else in your place.

  • To attend a pre-conference session, please complete the Pre-Conference Sessions section on the form. Fees of $100 per person are in addition to regular conference registration fees. You can attend a pre-conference session without registering for the rest of the conference.

  • If only one member of a couple is planning to attend a pre-conference session, please indicate on the form which person is attending which session. Fees of $100 are in addition to regular conference registration fees.

  • Parent couple registration rates are designed for two people who are or who will be raising a child or children together.

  • The membership discount is available to one individual or couple for each current individual/family member, one representative of each parent group member, up to 20 employees of each organizational member, up to 20 parents affiliated with each enhanced parent group member, and all employees of each national/corporate member.

  • Saturday’s award luncheon is included in full conference registration and the Saturday-only registration fees. If you need to purchase additional tickets for guests, please contact NACAC.

  • By indicating session preferences on the registration form, you help us to more accurately assign rooms. You are not, however, bound to your choices at the conference and can go to other sessions. Individual registrants should include one choice per session. Couples should choose two (both people can attend the same workshop).

  • If you need special accommodations to enable you to more fully participate in the conference (such as sign language interpretation), please contact NACAC.

  • If you prefer NOT to be included on a registrant list, please check the box on the registration form under the Registrant Information section.

  • Please indicate if you are willing to be a workshop monitor. Monitors attend sessions, notify staff of issues, and evaluate the sessions. If you check this option on the form, we will share your information with the monitor coordinator.

  • NACAC offers a 50 percent discount on conference registration fees to full-time college or graduate students. Student registrants must submit a copy of their student ID and a current transcript with their registration form.
