REGISTRATION


On-Line Registration
When registration begins (the new date will be announced soon) you will be able to register online on the IAPS site by clicking on the REGISTER link at the left of this page. Just follow the prompts to register and sign up for classes of your choice. Read the information carefully and keep a written note of your password so you can go back in to review your registration details later.

Be aware that workshops (as opposed to demonstrations) can only accommodate about 20 people in each class, and some will fill very quickly - even within days of the registration opening up. So if you really want a specific workshop, donít delay - register early! Demonstrations accommodate about 60 people so usually donít fill quite so quickly.

Mail-In Registration
If you do not wish to register online, you may download and print the registration form, complete it and mail it with your check or credit card information. Please be aware that some classes may fill between the time you mail your registration and the time it is received and processed. (A link to the form will be provided here when Registration opens.)

On-Site Registration in Albuquerque
If you donít register online or by mail, you may register on-site at the convention starting on Wednesday afternoon, June 3, 2015. It is likely that many of the classes will be filled by then, so we recommend if possible you pre-register.

CHANGES & CHANGE FEES


Adding a Class: After your initial registration, you can add extra classes online with no change fee provided no other class change is involved.
Sign in using your password and select the new class.
You pay the class fee online through Pay Pal.
