AGM Registration: How It Will Work

TWO-STAGE REGISTRATION OPENING: The registration system will open at 12 noon EDT, making available half of the total registration slots and half of the workshop, tour, and special event spaces. The system will remain open until those slots are filled. At 9:00pm EDT, the other half of the total registration slots and activity spaces will be made available. If you are waitlisted for the AGM at noon, do try again to register at 9:00pm.

STATUS UPDATES AND TECHNICAL TROUBLE REPORTS: These will be posted in the AGM Update Center at If you have difficulties while registering, please email or We will assist you as quickly as possible. Unless you’re unable to proceed, do not stop registering, as you will risk places becoming sold out. We can help you make adjustments later.

JASNA MEMBER PORTAL: The registration system is not connected to the JASNA Member Portal. You must use the button above to register; do not log into the Member Portal.

REGISTRATION WAITLISTS: Again, if you are waitlisted for the AGM at noon, do try again to register at 9:00pm. The two-stage opening will result in two separate registration waitlists; we will alternate between the two lists when admitting new registrants as space becomes available. When a registration space becomes available, you will have 48 hours in which to register, then the opportunity will pass to the next person on the list.

EVENT-SPECIFIC WAITLISTS: The online system also keeps waitlists for optional tours, workshops, and special events that sell out. If you’re on an event-specific waitlist, you will be notified if space becomes available.

REGISTERING MORE THAN ONE PERSON: Each person, whether Attendee or Companion, must register with a unique email address. If you don't have and can't get a second email account, you can use a work email, an old email, anything that is not being used by another AGM registrant -- we’ll sort it out after you are registered. If two registrants share an email address and don't have other options, you can try inserting a plus sign and the number 1 (+1) before the @ in the email address (e.g., This works for Gmail and Outlook but may not work for all email systems. To start the second registration, after you complete your first registration and payment, scroll to the top of the page and click the “Log Out” link in the blue bar at top, then click "Register" to start the second registration.

REGISTERING FOR SOMEONE ELSE: The online system does not verify the identity of the person registering, and you may defer payment by selecting “personal check” as your payment option. The registrant can send a check or log in to the system later and complete a credit card payment. All balances must be closed within 14 days to avoid cancellation.

COMPLETING THE PROCESS: When you have successfully submitted your registration, you will receive an email with a record of your selections and payment. Check your spam and junk folders and trash if you don’t see the email, and consider temporarily making your spam filter less restrictive. Please make a note of the email address you used to register; all registration updates will go to that address.

CONFIRMATION: Your registration will be PENDING until your payment is received and your JASNA membership verified. At that point your status will be changed to CONFIRMED. If you have not received a confirmation email within 21 days, please contact us at

CHANGING YOUR REGISTRATION: You can return to the system, change your selections, and initiate a supplemental payment or refund. If you need assistance, email (Change requests will be handled after the rush of initial registration opening.) Please be aware that JASNA incurs transaction fees for each change you make.

CANCELLING YOUR REGISTRATION: At present, you may cancel your registration yourself and receive a full refund. In accordance with the Cancellation and Refund Policy, a $50 cancellation fee will be charged if you cancel between August 5 and September 30. Beginning October 1, no refunds will be made.

Payment Policy

All balances must be closed within 14 days to avoid cancellation.

TO PAY BY CHECK: All checks must be in U.S. funds and drawn on a U.S. bank. Mail to Elizabeth Schraft, 175 N Harbor Dr Apt 1811, Chicago, IL 60601-7360. Checks must be received within 14 days.

Refund Policy

(a) If JASNA is forced to cancel the AGM completely or reduce capacity due to government regulations, registrants will receive full refunds of registration fees only, regardless of when the cancellation takes place. JASNA is not liable for any travel-related expenses registrants may incur.

(b) With regard to individual cancellations, registrants may cancel and receive a full refund up to 21 days after the registration opening date. (In recent years, AGMs have sold out on the opening date.) Cancellations made by individuals after that date, but before October 1, will incur a $50 fee. Beginning October 1, no refunds will be made for individual cancellations.

For tours, separate cancellation deadlines apply. These will be detailed on the Tours page and in an email to those who register for tours.

The planned AGM program and the scheduling of specific presentations and activities are as described on the AGM website. Adjustments may be necessitated by changes in speaker or facility availability beyond JASNA’s control. Where possible, JASNA will arrange for replacement speakers/activities if needed, to provide a rewarding and enriching AGM experience. In any case, no refunds will be given solely due to changes in program or schedule, except as covered by the Refund Policy above.

Virtual Presentations

A streamlined online offering of selected conference presentations will be made available after the AGM for a separate fee. Details about registering for the online presentations will be posted in late summer.
