WSSA/CWSS-SCM 2014 Meeting Program in Now Online
Meeting Registration for the 2014 Joint Annual Meeting for the WSSA and CWSS/SCM is now available on the WSSA website. Please read through this information prior to beginning the registration process.
There are a number of registration types: WSSA members only; CWSS members only; Members of both; WSSA Student Members, CWSS Student Members, Student Members of both; and Non-Members. The registration rates are the same for each type but we need everyone to register into the appropriate category for various count purposes. All student registrations (WSSA and CWSS) include 2014 membership in the WSSA with online access to all three journals.
For WSSA Members, when you click on the meeting registration page, you will be prompted to Login. If you have not yet modified your own Login in the new system, Login with your registered email address and last name as a default password. Your password must be a minimum of 7 characters, and starts with a capital letter. Please insert 9s after your last name to reach 7 characters if necessary (Example: Smith99).
If you have already modified your own login in the My Account section, use that login.
If you are not a WSSA member (either a CWSS member only or a non-member of either) you will first need to “register” with the system and create an account. During this process, you can create your log-in information, then proceed to the meeting registration. Yes – probably somewhat confusing as there are two types of “register” – one to create an account and one to “register” for the annual meeting.
In addition to the meeting registration itself, there are some optional events to purchase. Please review the information about the Sunday workshop and the tours in the annual meeting brochure. There are also options for CWSS members to purchase guest tickets for the CWSS awards luncheon and the CWSS Industry Reception. All registrants can purchase guest tickets for the Monday opening night reception.
We are really looking forward to this joint meeting – Vancouver is always lovely – no matter which season – and Joe DiTomaso and Hugh Beckie are putting together an outstanding program. Submit your abstract titles (By October 2nd) and register for this meeting – early bird rates end December 9th.
To register online go to: http://www.wssa.net . There is a link to all of the 2014 meeting information in the first topic of the home page Headlines. After clicking on that there are additional links to Meeting Registration and the Meeting Brochure as well as a link to abstract submission. The meeting brochure includes a fillable pdf registration page (but you'll still need to do the math to add the total!).
