It is recommended that you complete your registration via a computer or iPad rather than a mobile device. When you are ready to register, please follow these IMPORTANT instructions before signing up!

Compact Members:

Please select “Option 1” when registering. Since Compact members will not be charged, you will need to complete the fillable form because the ERP system is not configured to accept registrations without a form of payment.  Compact members using Option 1 will receive an invitation to view their online account once their fillable form is processed completely.

Non-Compact Members (Federal, Non-State Agency, Other):

Please choose “Option 2″.  You will be redirected to the registration site, create an account, select classes, and enter information and preferences there. IMPORTANT: Those using option 2 MUST add the first “class” labeled “Meals/Lodging/T-shirt/Passes” to their cart. This is the section that all the questions and additional options are tied to. If you don’t select the first “class” – you will not be able to select the other options.

If registering for multiple people, please register for one person at a time.

If you would like on-site meals, determine the number of breakfasts, lunches and dinners individually that you will need and enter the number of meals as the “Quantity” under each option at checkout. **Dinner will be provided on Monday, June 4th and Wednesday, June 6th. Do not purchase dinners on those dates.
