Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to be a delegate member (tech director) in order purchase the Premier membership?  No.

Must all members of a system choose the same membership type?  No. Each person can use the best plan for them.

What if I’ve already paid my 2019 membership? If you’ve already paid, you will get a $25 discount off of the Premier price.

If I choose Premier Member, will I still have to register for events? Yes, just so we can do your name badge. You will choose the $0 Premier Member option that will be presented.

What if I can’t attend the Fall Symposium? Notify us in advance and we will refund you the $150 Premier member rate. Note that no refunds will be given for other events.

If I don’t choose Premier, will I still be able to register for Fall and other events? Absolutely, but Premier members will be able to register first. Registration fees for Basic Members are shown in the table above.

Why should I choose Premier? One purchase order per year instead of three or four. Streamlined event registration. Lower overall cost. Access to a mentor for delegate members.

Membership Categories
