Individual Registration

To register to attend the conference as an individual participant, please follow the instructions below.

Step 1 – Go to the main registration page, click on the “Register” button towards the middle of the page

Step 2 – The registrant will be directed to sign-in.  This is the first step for all conference attendees (click here for login instructions and help).

Step 3 - Once a person is signed in, the system will recognize their registration rate and options based on the information contained in their member record, i.e., their company name and member status.

If you are registering just yourself, use Step 4A, then skip to Step 5

If you are registering a group and yourself, you’ll want to do Step 4A first, then go to Step 4B. If you are not one of the registrants in the group, skip to Step 4B

Step 4A – Select “Register myself” and then choose the option that works best –

Step 4B - Select “Register someone else”, follow the instructions to find or add a person from your organization, and then choose the option that works best –

If the registrant is a non-member or needs to renew their membership, they will see options to purchase membership dues in addition to registering under the block rate

Most people will want to choose the “Full registration + $50 Individual Membership” option. 

DO NOT CHOOSE THE $300 “FULL REGISTRATION” OPTION UNLESS YOU WANT TO PAY THE NON-MEMBER RATE

If the registrant is a current member, they will see the option to register at no additional cost

Step 5 – After choosing the initial registration option, the registrant can then select any optional events you’d like to attend by clicking “Add”

Repeat steps 4B and 5 as many times as necessary, when you have registered all of the people you need to, continue to Step 6

Step 6 – When selections have been made, click on “Proceed to Checkout”

Step 7 - Verify registration items in the “shopping cart” are accurate. To make changes to items in the cart, click on the registration description item to be brought back to the registration area.  Make changes and click “proceed to checkout” again.

Step 8 - Once the registrant has chosen and verified the items in the cart, the next step is choosing the payment option (Pay Now or Pay Later)

Pay Now: To pay with a credit card, choose Pay Now and enter the required information. MSSA accepts Visa, MasterCard and Discover.

Pay Later: To receive an invoice and/or use a purchase order (optional), choose Pay Later. 

Step 9 - After the payment information is entered, click on “Submit Order”.  Clicking submit order will bring you to the Order Confirmation Page, and will generate a payment receipt or invoice email based on the payment option chosen. 

Please note: If the Pay Later option is chosen, the email generated and sent to the registrant’s email address is considered the invoice – no separate invoice will be sent
