You can browse all the Conference information without signing in, but to register you must sign in. HINT: We recommend signing-in before going to the Conference Registration system.
Conference on-line registration consists of five easy steps:
Step 1: Sign-In to the Website
Click on "Sign In" in the upper-right hand corner. Complete details on signing-in are on the Sign-In page.
Once you are signed in, return to this page to learn about the rest of the steps, or go immediately to the Events List: CDA Conference 2018/ 2018 ACB Congrès .
Step 2: Activate the Registration System
Click on “Register Myself” to activate the registration system. This will allow you to choose the activities that you want and add them to your itinerary.
Step 3: Choose a Registration Category
Choose the appropriate Registration Option. Certain registration options can only be chosen by staff.
Step 4: Create an itinerary by choosing your activities
Before reviewing your options, you may want to “Select Programs by Category
” (your options are “Day", "Category" or "View All”).
Create an itinerary by choosing any Program Items (Workshops, Technical Tours, etc.). Simply click on the "Add" button to build your registration. Every program item is listed with its price and a brief description; if you need more detail, come back to the conference website.
a. Respond to the questions that appear below the registration options. Once you've responded to the questions, please click on "Save Responses".

from Category 02.
c. Choose a post-conference technical tour
from Category 03.
d. Choose any social events not included in your delegate registration

We recommend reviewing your itinerary before going to Step 5: Submit Payment
. To do so, click on “Only display program items in registrant’s itinerary” to see the items that you have chosen. You may want to print it as well.
You can review your itinerary and add or delete functions at any time, even after you register and pay. The system will create a refund (processed by staff) or allow you to pay any additional charges. You might find this useful if you decide to add a Technical Tour or workshop closer to the conference date. Simply go back to the Conference registration page and add or delete items from your itinerary, and follow the remaining steps.
Step 5: Submit Payment
Click on “Proceed to Checkout” (or click on your Shopping Cart in the upper right-hand corner). Payment is by credit card. The system will generate a confirmation and send it to the e-mail address that we have on file. There is the option to send the confirmation to multiple e-mail addresses.
If you are unable to pay by credit card, choose the “Bill Me” option to generate an invoice, and submit a copy of the Confirmation notice with your payment. You may need to use this option if your accounting department needs to issue a purchase order, or if your organization is tax-exempt. Note that your registration is not confirmed until payment is received.
A full refund of your registration fees, less a $50.00 administration charge, will be processed upon receipt of written cancellation notice to CDA received no later than September 21, 2018. No refunds will be issued for cancellations received after September 21, 2018. Substitutions for full registrations from the same organization will be accepted if submitted in writing up to and including October 5, 2018.
