If so – REMEMBER TO REGISTER!
To secure your place on the final program, you must complete your paid registration for the convention by October 19, 2016. You can register easily on the ISA website. You will be removed from the program if you don’t register by October 19th. This policy requirement is necessary to help the ISA deal with the issues caused by late withdrawals, which create problematic holes in the program. Without that rule, last minute attrition is also much higher, and this is unfair to those on the waiting list hoping to join the program.
Note that there is an automatic $20.00 discount for registrations made through the ISA website.
