Question: I'm registering a large group. How can my group receive the NHCPC group discount?
Answer: We encourage organizations to register multiple attendees for the conference! For every fifth person registered, the organization will receive a 50% discount on that individual's conference fee. See instructions below:

To receive the group discount, you must book all of your attendees at once. Begin registering your first attendee. When you reach the Registration Summary page, you will be given the option to "Add Additional Registrant". Use that function to register the next registrant and repeat for your whole group. When you complete the final registration you will be taken to the payment page which will include the payment details for all registrants and will show the appropriate discount.

Answer: The confirmation email you receive upon completing registration will contain a link and log-in information necessary to modify your registration.
