IMPORTANT REGISTRATION INFORMATION
Who’s covering the cost?
Before you register, please determine who will be paying for your registration. Once registered and confirmed, you are committed to attending and paying for the conference, and are subject to our cancellation policy. We highly recommend paying for yourself with a credit card- it is the only sure way to know that you have been registered, paid for, and are ready to attend CAST.
I am registering myself - my ISD is not paying, my ISD is going to reimburse me, or I am in charge of my own registration.
When you pay with a credit card, it makes payments and refunds much easier and it guarantees your early-bird discount. If you register individually, you are responsible for your own fees. Just click the “register now” button in the upper right corner, put in your information, select your options and input your credit card. It's THAT easy!
I am registering as part of a group - payment will be made through the group by check or credit card.
If you are registering as a group you will have one group administrator who will be the first name you enter in the online registration system. This person must be attending CAST. If you are registering a group, but not attending CAST, please designate a group administrator who is attending and put your information under Billing Contact. Only the group administrator will have access to add additional items such as short courses for members of the group. Also, payment will be managed by the group administrator. We highly recommend that the group administrator collect e-mail addresses, contact information and emergency contacts for each guest prior to starting the registration process.
To add an attendee to the group, click “Add Guest” and enter the contact information for each guest. Once you have entered the names and contact information for your guests you will click "Next" and choose the registration type and optional sessions for each guest as their name appears. Please note that only 30 people can be in any given group. At the end of registration, all members of your group and their individual sessions will be calculated for a final cost. You must then either submit payment by credit card or check.
Please remember Purchase Orders are not accepted and you must submit a check or credit card payment by the conference start date to attend.
