As we welcome the new academic year, many schools are solidifying plans to attend the National Student Electronic Media Convention in Seattle. Here are a few pointers to help you and your school financially prepare for registration:
1. Register Early
CBI Member Media Outlet Students, Advisers, and Managers are able to register for $100 through Oct. 1. If you’re not part of a CBI Member Media Outlet, you can register for $160.00 through Oct. 1. Non-academic related attendees also have a special early bird rate of $200.
2. Register Everyone Attending
Any individual attending NSEMC must be a paid registrant—including students, advisers, speakers, and presenters. The CBI Board of Directors also pays to attend the best convention of the year! If your funds aren’t available until after Oct 1., we still offer regular registration rates starting at $130 through the convention date.
3. Paying by Check? Mail it Early.
CBI snail mail is directed to our P.O. Box in Penn. Mail is forwarded to me monthly, so plan for a 3-4 week process time for your check. Mailing your convention check sooner than later will ease your worry. We process payments based on postmark date, so hang tight if your check sent before Oct. 1 isn’t processed until closer to the convention. If paying by check, please user our Wild Apricot membership site to process your registration. Kindly mail a copy of the Wild Apricot registration with your check.
4. Same-Day Credit Card Processing
Registering by credit card is the quickest method to process payments. Please use our Wild Apricot membership site to process your request via PayPal. Our PayPal portal accepts credit card payments without PayPal registered accounts—so no need to worry about paying through a personal PayPal account.
5. Registering Multiple Attendees from your Media Outlet
Media Outlets registering multiple attendees should register each individual separately or add additional individuals as guests to the main registrant (i.e. the media outlet adviser). Use the button at the bottom left of the registration page to add additional attendee information.
6. Someone Registered Can’t Attend?
NSEMC registrations are non-refundable, but you can request a transfer to another individual attending within the same registration level. For example, if a registered CBI Member Student cannot attend, you can replace the student’s registration with a new student at your media outlet. A follow-up email will be issued to the adviser to confirm the request.
