Register Your Complimentary Conference Attendees (by November 30)

If you have questions or trouble, please contact [email protected]. Sponsor registration will not be available until the general event registration is open. 

  • After purchasing your sponsorship, go to Joint Action Conference registration page and log into the website. 
  • You will see a registration ticket labeled "Sponsor Registration." Use this ticket to register your complimentary conference attendees.
    • The sponsor registration ticket will not appear until the day after you purchase your sponsorship, so you will need to wait 24 hours before using your complimentary registration(s). 
    • If you do not see the sponsor registration ticket, and it has been at least one day since you purchased your sponsorship, contact [email protected] for assistance. 
  • The sponsor registration ticket will automatically allow the first X people from your organization who register for that ticket register for free. (X equals the number of complimentary registrations in your sponsorship package.) 
    • After your complimentary registrations have been claimed, you will still see the sponsor registration ticket, but additional registrations will be charged the regular registration fee (based on membership status). 

Please Note: 

  • The sponsor registration ticket is visible to all individuals from your organization if they are logged in to the website. 
    • You can register your complimentary attendees with a sponsor registration, or you can allow your complimentary attendees to register themselves with a sponsor registration. 
    • Whenever anyone from your organization uses a sponsor registration, it will count toward your total number of complimentary registrations. 
  • You will see the paid registration option even if you have not used all your complimentary slots. This allows your paying attendees to register while you determine your complimentary registrants. 
  • Sponsor registrations convey the same access to conference events as paid registrations.
  • Pre-conference seminars are not included with the sponsor registration, but you can register for the seminars at the regular registration fee (based on membership status).
  • If you need to make changes to a registration, contact [email protected] (for example, if you need to change who will be using one of your complimentary registrations).
