• Where do I send my check?

    You may send your check or money order in US dollars to:

    NALMS
    PO Box 7276
    Boulder CO 80306-7276

  • Do I need to join NALMS before registering to get the NALMS Member registration rate?

    No. You can add a NALMS membership to your symposium registration as part of the registration process and be eligible for NALMS Member registration rate.

    NALMS memberships are good for one year. You can learn more about NALMS memberships here.

  • How do I add an item to my registration?

    You can add a field trip, workshop or special event to your registration and pay with the same credit card, a different credit card or a check. Click on the Modify Your Registration menu item to access and modify your registration. You will need to enter your email address and confirmation number.

    Once you’ve logged in and clicked on the “Modify” button, click on the “Registration” link under “Modify” in the resulting table.

    Do not make any changes on the page with the conference registration options (NALMS Member, Non-Member, etc.), just click the “Next” button at the bottom of the page. If you are already registered for the conference and select the “Extended Session, Field Trip or Special Event Only Registration” option, you will cancel your registration. You probably don’t want to do that!

    The next page will show the list of available field trips, workshops and special events. Once you’ve made your selections on that page, keep clicking the “Next” button until you get to the payment page. Once you’ve entered your payment (if applicable) and clicked “Finish” you’ll be all set.

  • Is there a presenter rate?

    We do not offer a special rate for presenters. All presenters of accepted abstracts must register for the symposium and NALMS does not waive registration fees or offer a reduced rate for presenters. The NALMS Office must receive registration and payment no later than August 17, 2018 to ensure inclusion in the symposium program.

  • Do I need to register for the conference if I only want to attend a workshop or field trip?

    No, you do not need to purchase a conference registration if you only plan to attend a workshop or field trip. When you register, choose the “Workshop, Field Trip or Special Event Only Registration” option and then choose which workshop(s) or field trip(s) you would like to attend on the following page.

  • Which meals are included in my registration?

    Details on what’s included with your registration may be found on the Registration Fees (individuals) or the Exhibitor Information pages.

    • Field trip, special event and workshop fees are fully refundable through September 7. A $10 cancellation fee will be assessed for cancellations received September 8 – October 19. There will be no refunds after October 19.

  • Can I buy an extra banquet ticket?

    In order to reduce the amount of wasted food at the banquet, we do not offer banquet tickets for sale. Instead we will offer attendees the opportunity to be added to an onsite wait list for tickets donated by attendees who will not be using their tickets. We have never had to turn away people from the banquet using this system.
