Frequently Asked Questions

How much is registration for delegates?

All members of this year's upcoming House of Delegates (delegates, alternate delegates, etc.) receive a registration discount. Once state components submit their delegate names to and they are entered on the roster, a discount will automatically be applied to the member's account. If a delegate is also fills another role (annual meeting presenter, etc.), that may override the delegate discount.
