    Registration FAQs

    How do I take advantage of the Conference + Membership rate to add or renew PRIM&R membership?

    You can become a PRIM&R member or renew your membership when you register for the IACUC18! Our conference + membership rate allows you to bundle a one-year membership with your conference registration for the same price as nonmember registration. To take advantage of this offer, add PRIM&R membership to your cart first when registering and you'll receive the member rate for conference registration.

    If you already registered for the conference at the nonmember rate, but did not take advantage of this offer, contact the membership team. All conference registration upgrades to include membership must be received by Friday, March 30, 2018.

    What is included in the cost of registration?

    Registration for the IACUC Conference includes access to the onsite meeting, session materials, conference proceedings, breakfast, breaks, and a reception. Attendees will eat lunch on their own. Information on area dining options can be found here. Full day preconference program registration* includes access to the onsite program, session materials, breakfast, breaks, lunch, and a reception.

    *Lunch will also be provided for those who attend two half day preconference programs.

    Can I register more than one person at a time/How do I register a group?

    You can register multiple people at once if they are all from the same institution and all have accounts with PRIM&R. You can register them by check by submitting all their registration forms with your payment (as you would an individual), or you can register them online by following the below instructions. If you intend to register multiple people online, it may be helpful to have each person complete the paper registration form and return it to you so you can refer to it when prompted for their session selections, dietary restrictions, emergency contact information, etc.

    1. Click "Register a Group" above and login to (or create) your PRIM&R account.
    2. You'll be directed to the group registration page. On this page, click the button that says "Add a Registrant."
    3. A pop-up window will open. In the line that says "Registrant," select the person you want to add from the pulldown.
      If the person you wish to register is not showing up in the pulldown (or no one is showing up in the pulldown) this means the other individual(s) either (a) don't have an account, or (b) are not connected to the same institution as you. You can contact us at 617.423.4112 or email us and we can check our database for their account and adjust or add it as needed.
    4. Next, select the "Registrant Type" from that pulldown and check off the one event fee and session(s) that person will be attending. Click "Continue."
    5. In the next window, you'll be prompted for the attendee's dietary restrictions, emergency contact information, etc. After noting this information, click "Save & Add Another" if you have more attendees to add, or "Save & Continue" if you're done adding attendees.
    6. Repeat steps 2 through 5 for each attendee you'd like to add. If you are also registering yourself, don't forget to add yourself as one of the attendees.
    7. Once you're done adding attendees and have clicked "Save & Continue," you'll be directed back to the main Group Registration page where you should see a list of all the registrants you've added. To finish the registration and submit payment, click "Save & Add to Cart" and then fill in information as instructed.
    I'm a government employee, but I'm not seeing the government rate.

    If you're a federal government employee and the government rate is not showing for you when you register online, we simply need to update your record in our database. Please send us an email from your federal email account to inform us. We will then update your account within two business days and inform you once this is complete so you can register at the government rate.

    I'm a first time attendee, where can I find tips for what to expect before and during the conference?

    First-time attendees should visit our Tips for Attendees page for helpful information about the conference. We also encourage First-time attendees to register for the First-Time Attendee Breakfast.

    How do I view my personalized conference agenda and/or add sessions if I forgot to select them when I registered?
    1. If you would like to view your agenda and/or add session selections, log in to our website and select the "My Transactions" link on the left side of your screen.
    2. From there, select the "View" link under the "Registration" column of the 2018 IACUC Conference row, and select the "Add Tracks/Sessions" link.

    Under "My Transactions," users can also print their personalized agenda and print an invoice, all by selecting the "View" option in the "Registration" column of any event(s) they're registered for.
