If for some reason you do not receive your packet prior to the meeting, materials can be picked up at the meeting.

Session changes or additions

Those who have registered prior to the Early Bird registration deadline will have their records locked beginning June 20, 2018 at 12:01 p.m. (CT). This allows for the mailing of the badges prior to the meeting. After this time, you will not be allowed to add, cancel, or swap any session tickets. After the deadline, all session ticket changes must be made at the meeting.

Those who register after the Early Bird registration deadline will not have their badge mailed, and will retain the ability to alter their session tickets up until advance registration closes on July 18, 2018 at 12 p.m. noon (CT).
