Are you planning to attend Convention (now only ten days away!), but haven’t gotten around to registering yet? Today is the last day that you can pre-register for Convention! After today (April 20), you will have to register on-site. Please don’t wait and register online today! If you do not register today, registration will be open Wednesday, April 29 (5-8 PM) and throughout Convention.
If you registered early (before March 31), you should have received your Convention badge and workshop/event tickets by now. Please don’t forget to bring them, along with your barcoded registration receipt, to Convention as these will help to speed up the registration process. If the lines are long when you arrive, you may use your workshop tickets to go straight into your workshops, however you should try to get to the registration area at your earliest convenience in order to pick up your voting card (if you’re a voting delegate), ribbons, tote bag, and other essentials. There will be a special express lane for early registrants who have their materials. If you forget to bring your badge and tickets, there will be a $10 fee to reprint them.
If you registered advance registration (April 1-20), bring your barcoded registration receipt. You will need to pick up all of your registration materials before you can attend any workshops, meetings, or events.
All on-site registrants and any early/advance registrants who did not verify their membership online must bring their PTA membership card to Convention! If you are unable to present a membership card, you will be assessed the non-PTA member rate of $400 and forfeit your voting rights at meetings. If you do not have a membership card, please contact your PTA unit NOW and ask for one. If your unit is unwilling to distribute membership cards, you should contact Kathryn Cross, Vice President for Programs and Convention for assistance.
