Questions & Answers

Question: My local plans to cover my registration fee. How do I indicate this when I register?

There is an option on the Submit Payment portion of the registration process called "My local will pay for my registration." If you select this payment option, your registration will be submitted and your spots saved, however your registration won't be considered "finalized" until Education Minnesota receives payment from your local. Once you register, please make sure to forward your confirmation email to your local president to make sure they're aware of your registration. You will receive a confirmation email once payment has been received. Please contact Sam Jasenosky (sam.jasenosky@edmn.org) if you have any questions regarding local payments.

Question: I have registered for Summer Seminar, but I want to modify my sessions. How can I do that?

If you click here to return to the registration website home page, click on Already Registered? in the bottom right of the page. You'll be prompted for your confirmation number--this was included in the confirmation email you received when you originally registered. Once you enter that number, you'll be brought to a page where you can see your schedule, and Modify should be an option at the top. By selecting modify, the system will allow you to make changes to your registration. (Note: if you return to the home page and see Register Someone Else instead of Already Registered?, that means you are already logged into your registration; to modify your registration this way, please click Confirmation on the navigation menu to the right.)
