OAS Meeting Registration Now Live

The 2016 OAS Annual Meeting Registration is now live.  We have changed to a new credit card processor so the registration process has changed.  Here are some tips for registration:
  • Go to the "2016 Meeting Registration" tab at the top of the page and select either "Registration Form" to register for the meeting, "Speaker Registration" if you are a speaker (you can upload your presentation here), or "Pay Online" to pay your registration fee.
  • You can pay fees by check, purchase order or credit card.
