Fall Conference Registration Information and link

This year all conference registration will be handled online or onsite onlyI know many of you have questions, so I am going to answer as many as I possibly can.

 What does conference registration include?

  • All program materials
  • Admission to all conference sessions
  • NEW:  Luncheon Wednesday and Thursday.  Awards will be presented in Thursday morning General Session. 

  • Admission to the President’s reception

How do I pay for my registration online?   

MCA will accept

  • PayPal
  • Debit or Credit Card
  • Purchase orders with number and correct billing address
  • Checks.  Your check must  be mailed to the MCA office within five days or your registration is incomplete.
  •  If your check is not received within 5 business days you are not registered. 


Early Bird Registration requirements are the same.

With online registration you must complete the registration by the deadlines established, otherwise you may find that your registration is not considered early bird.  

Payment by check must be made within 5 business days or you will automatically roll to the regular registration.


Can membership be paid at the same time with a Purchase Order? 

NO, you will need a separate purchase order for membership?

I need a completed membership form for each member.  Please make sure your business office sends your membership form with the purchase order.  Otherwise there may be confusion at registration during conference.  Please keep a copy of the Purchase order and your membership form for you records just in case.  

Hint, if you pay your own membership, online is the best way


Can my district use the one Purchase Order for all the counselors at my school or district?

YES, but each counselor must complete the online form individually for their registration.  All the counselors, can use the same P.O. number on their registration.


Can I mail my registration to the MCA Office?  If you do this you will treated at the onsite price.  Online registration is to ensure we have correct information that only you can put into the computer, so MCA can ensure you get your continuing education hours much sooner than in the past.

Does Non-member rate include a free year of membership?

No, that  was a limited promotional offer to recruit members that has since ended.

…Please avoid the lines and higher prices by registering early and make sure your membership is updated.
