The fee for registration is $60.00. Due to Department of Defense regulations on funding we will only be accepting payment of the registration fee at the conference on the days of 26 and 27 October via cash or check, not via credit/debit card. We apologize for this inconvenience. A late registration fee of $100.00 will be charged to anyone who arrives at the conference without previously registering.

 

Because the United States Military Academy is a military installation all conference participants will need to obtain a visitor's pass, or Local Area Credential. You must complete the Local Area Credential Request Form and bring it to the Visitor Control Center or, if we can arrange it, to a mobile Credential provider that will be at our registration table. Information about obtaining the pass is available here
