Required Attendee Registration

All individuals attending the conference must pay a registration fee. All workshops and educational session presenters MUST be registered!

Substitutions

Substitutions are allowed by individuals within the same institution/company. Substitutions should have the same member classification so that the payment is an even exchange transfer of payment. Please email your request for the substitute attendee to naspa@experient-inc.com.
