Prepare to Register

Online registration has closed.

Attendees who have not yet registered can do so on-site, at the College of Alameda campus. Registration will be located at the New Liberal Arts Building (Building H). Registration begins each day as follows: Thursday 4:00pm; Friday 7:30am; Saturday 7:30am

Please follow these instructions:

For individual attendees

  1. Enter your email address, name, affiliation, and contact information. (If you are in our database, the existing information will be displayed. You can edit it.)

  2. Choose a package after reading the details about each option.

  3. If you choose a Student package, upload proof of current student status showing 6+ semester units. Non-students and Groups, please skip this step; click the Continue with Registration button.

  4. Pay with a credit or debit card.

For groups of 5 or more attendees

[visual instructions]

  1. Enter your email address, name, and contact information as the paying Registrant. (If you are in our database, the existing information will be displayed. You can edit it.)

  2. Registrant vs. Attendee: After Step 1, your name, email address, and organization will appear by default as Attendee #1. If you (the Registrant) are processing the registration for a group but will not attend the conference yourself, you must change the name and email address to that of an attendee before proceeding to the next step. 

  3. Choose one or more Group packages. If you need to register 10 or more individuals, submit two or more group registrations. For example: 2 groups of 5 = 10 registrants, 3 groups of 6 = 18 registrants. Choose a Group package after reading the details about each option.

  4. Enter the names and email addresses of the additional attendees (remember Step 2: change Registrant name to the name of an Attendee). This way, each attendee will receive login info and a conference badge. If you need to register more than 5 attendees, follow the instructions in Step 3. Be sure your entries are accurate before clicking Continue because you cannot go back to change them. 

  5. Ignore the option to upload confirmation of student status; this does not apply to groups.

  6. Pay with a credit or debit card.
