Registration Questions

What are my registration options?  What’s the difference between In Person and Online registrations?

There are two registration packages available for this conference – In Person and Online.

Both registration packages give you access to the live presentations, all of the recorded presentations and other events throughout the conference week, such as social hours and the virtual round tables. Recordings of the presentations are available for viewing in the Recorded Library through December 31, 2023.

The In Person package allows you to also sign up for personal consultation for your research questions, attend the Book Sales (SCGS and speaker), talk to the speakers after their presentations and purchase a box lunch. You will have access to all of the recorded sessions so you can view them after the event.  We have a limit of 200 people for the In Person package. The last day to register for the Box Lunch is September 30th.

The Online registration gives you access to the live streamed and ALL the recorded sessions for the conference.

Is there a Early bird discount and if I’m an SCGS member?  Yes

What types of payments do you take?
You may pay for online registrations by credit card (VISA or MasterCard) or by sending a check by mail. Credit card sales process immediately and we encourage you to use this method. Registrations paid by check are not complete until your check is received. This may delay your registration for up to a week while waiting for your check to arrive. Registrations are not complete until your payment is received.

I’ve always registered by mail. Can I still do that?

Yes. It’s fast and easy to register in our new online registration system, but you can download the registration form print it, fill it out and send it along with your check to the address on the last page of the form. For your security, we can no longer accept credit card numbers through the mail.
