*New Registration System
This year we are trying a new registration system that we hope will simplify things. The new system uses a different payment gateway, and the form looks different from last year. Our new system should automate a lot of the manual work that was done in the past.
You must be a current (2016-2017) member of SUNYLA in order to receive the member rate for registration. This means that if you are not currently a member, you must join SUNYLA and wait for your membership to be processed before registering for the conference at the member rate.
To receive the member discount, you must enter the appropriate code in the Member Discount field on the registration form. You can obtain the code by filling out the form at http://www.sunyla.org/membership2/getcode.php. The code will be emailed to you if your membership is current.
Again, it is imperative that your membership renewal is completely processed before you register for the conference.
For information on reduced rates for presenters, please refer to the Guidelines for the SUNYLA Annual Conference Expenses. You will have a coupon code emailed to you once registration is open.
If you have any registration concerns please contact Logan Rath: firstname.lastname@example.org
