"Bill Me" Payment Option
NASPA enables* a “Bill Me” function for the NASPA Annual Conference to enable individuals from institutions requiring payment by check to register.
Please note: Payment will need to be made by stated deadlines or your registration will be moved to the next rate.
*During June 1 - June 30, 2022, the Bill Me feature will be disable as the special rate is only available for pre-payment of registration. Payment in full will be required during this time.
Substitutions are allowed by individuals within the same institution/company. Substitutes should also be the same member type so that payment is an even exchange transfer of payment. Please email information for the substitute attendee to [email protected] and provide all contact information including the title, email address, and NASPA ID#. Non-members must have a NASPA profile and NASPA ID#. Please click here to create a NASPA profile.
