Payment Information

PAYPAL or DEBIT or CREDIT CARD: If you want to use PayPal or a credit card, check the appropriate box below so we will know how you intend to pay. Then, when you click "send" to submit this form, you will be directed to PayPal where you can make a payment. You are not required to have a PayPal account to submit a debit/credit card payment on PayPal. To do this - once you are on the PayPal log in page - just select the link that says Debit or Credit Card and you'll be taken to the debit/credit card page.

You will receive a confirmation e-mail containing your registration information when you submit this form and a separate e-mail from PayPal containing a payment receipt when you submit your payment.

PAY BY CHECK: If you plan to pay by check, you will be directed to the PayPal site when you click "send", but you do not need to do anything on the PayPal page, just click the small link at the bottom that says "Cancel" and then submit your check via snail-mail. This only cancels payment, NOT your registration for the conference. Your conference registration will still be submitted.
