Registration Steps

Step 1 – Go to the main registration page, click on the “Register Now” button.

Step 2 – You 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 you are signed in, the system will recognize your registration rate and options based on the information in your member record (i.e., your company name and member status).

If you are registering just yourself, use Step 5A, then skip to Step 6

If you are registering a group and yourself, you’ll want to do Step 5A first, then go to Step 5B. Note: other individuals must be current members in order for you to register them with member pricing for the conference.

If you are not one of the registrants in the group, skip to Step 5B

Step 4 – If you would like to register for the conference at member pricing levels, you will need to have a membership that is current through April 1, 2020. If your membership is not current, add membership to your cart now. Click on your name at the top of the page to renew your membership or click here to  Join MSSA.

Step 5A – Select “Register myself” and then choose your registration option and click “Add” to select any additional events you would like to attend.

Step 5B - Select “Register someone else”, follow the instructions to find or add a person from your organization, and then choose the correct registration and event options.

If you see non-member pricing ($310-FULL REGISTRATION or $185-ONE DAY) and would like to pay the member rate, add your MSSA membership to the cart before chceking out. Please contact us at or 651.644.0556 for assistance.

Repeat steps 5B 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 use your confirmation email as an invoice choose Pay Later. Fill in the Purchase Order field with any number/letter combination you choose.
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 confirmation sent to the registrant’s email address is considered the invoice – no separate invoice will be sent.
