We have developed the registration website with four types of participants in mind. First, they are divided into participants from North America and participants from other countries who are designated as foreign delegates. Please refer to the category Foreign Delegates for details. This conference is open to anyone from North America (USA or Canada) and invited foreign delegates. Second, they are divided into the participants who bring children and those who do not bring children. The former and latter are grouped as Family and Regular, respectively. Please refer to the category Location & Housing for details. Those categories were necessary because the requirements for each type of participant were different. For example, the participants under Family have the option to add their children during the registration and pay the conference fee on their behalf.
You reach the registration website when you click on the icon for registration. When you click ‘Register Now’, you go to the registration page. Notice the first question on the top. Your choice will take you either the path of Regular or Family. You fill out personal information. When you select your residential country at the bottom, the country will determine your status as a North American or a foreign delegate. The residential country is not by your nationality, but your residence for more than half a year. For example, you are a Canadian by nationality. At the same time, you are a missionary in Uganda and have stayed there for seven months during the last one year. Your residential country is Uganda.
You click ‘Next’ in the navigation bar. You go to the next page and populate each data field. Some are mandatory and others are optional. That information is essential in serving you during the conference. If you do not know what to enter, please enter a tentative value. You complete the registration by submitting payment on the last page. Otherwise, you need to start over. When you complete the registration, you receive an email confirmation. It helps you to return to your web account where you modify your registration and so on. No penalty for modification. If you have additional questions during the registration, please click ‘Contact Us’. Fill out the form and submit it. Someone will contact you with an answer.
We have prepared a video for demonstration. The video has four parts: 1. Registration as Regular in North America 2. Registration as Family in North America 3. Registration as a foreign delegate 4. Modification after the registration. You pause as you watch or jump to a different part at your own pace.
The conference fee includes 3 nights of housing, 9 meals, use of the State Farm Center for general sessions, meeting space for GBS/interest groups, conference materials and general overhead for conference operations.
