This is especially important if you will be attending the conference as your school’s Institutional Representative and want to avoid the late fee that might result if your school has renewed its Institutional membership but did not let me know you were coming as your school’s Institutional Representative by the pre-registration deadline. Simply say: “Inst Rep” as your conference fee status with Institutional Membership as “PD.” And be sure to also say if you will be attending the Saturday night Banquet and if you need a veggie meal (helps with plate count). Thanks!
