How do I register for the national conference?
Register here by clicking on this link: Registration Form
Registration is per family or individual: the system will not allow group registrations (like a whole household) to ensure that each registrant’s details are accurately captured. You have the option to save your data and continue your registration at a later time. Places are limited per venue restrictions so please register early.
Payment can be made by credit card or bank deposit. If paying by credit card, you will be transacting directly on the Stripe payment portal. If paying by bank deposit, you will receive an email with the reference to be used when remitting your conference fee. Please note that you are officially registered only after your conference fee has been received by the registration committee.
Reminders will be sent out prior to the conference in case members have completed the registration form and forgotten to remit their registration fees.
If registering for someone else, please ensure that their names and contact details are correctly entered.
If you require assistance with online registration, please let your household head know, or contact the Conference Registration Committee at email@example.com.
Is there a discount if I attend only Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th?
A flat rate applies as it is a challenge to get around the catering, logistics and facilities/services needs of the conference. We hope delegates are able to join the conference in its entirety and that the talks and activities benefit our community..
