FAQs About Registration

Do you offer letters of invitation to attend your conference? How can I get one?

Please check with our office to see if a letter of invitation is available for the program in question, as not every conference offers them. Most one day programs do not, as they are intended for local participants. If a letter of invitation is available, our policy requires that the participant must be registered and paid in full for the event, before we can issue a letter. We offer emailed letters of invitation free of charge. If you require a mailed letter of invitation, you are responsible for the shipping fees. There is a minimum $15 processing fee for mailed letters of invitation.

Can I register on-site?

This depends on the course. A lot of our courses have a maximum number of participants and at times we are unable to accommodate on-site registrations. Be sure to check the conference website for the latest status information. Please click the "register online" link and a message will pop up that registration is closed and whether or not there is space to register on site. You can also contact our office.

Which credit card types do you accept?

Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover
