CONFERENCE REGISTRATION RATE INFORMATION

In order to qualify for a discounted BMES member registration rate, the registrant must be a BMES member in good standing (not expired) at the time of registration, and their membership must remain current through October 14, 2017. BMES members must be logged into their account in order to gain access to the BMES member registration portals, and you will only be able to complete your registration through the portals that correspond with your member-type. If your membership is expired or is due to expire ahead of October 14, please click here to renew your membership prior to beginning your registration.

Expired members and individuals who do not log in ahead of beginning their registration will not be able to access the discounted member rate registration portals. Expired members that do not renew ahead of registering will be redirected and charged at the appropriate Non-Member rate.
