I'm a Chapter Executive and I'd like to register and pay for all members of my chapter.

Chapter Executives may use the Chapter Interface to register and pay for members of their chapter. Be sure to review NECA Chapter Registration Tutorial before proceeding to register for your chapter members. You can also download the Chapter Registration Instructions and Documentations for your reference.

Please note: All registrations made on the Chapter Interface must be paid in full by September 22, 2021. Any unpaid balances on the chapter may interfere with your members' access to the conference.

I registered for the virtual option. How will I access the virtual conference? What is my login and password?
