Important things to know about the 15th Annual High Plains Conference Registration

  1. You must follow the instructions above and have a user account on the associated registration/submissions website. 
  2. You will have the ability to register for conference attendance as well as the Formal Banquet and for pre-order of Conference T-shirts.
  3. Registration is completed on a secure website that will link to Paypal for all monetary transactions.  No credit card information will be received by the High Plains Conference, other than notification of payment received. 
  4. You will have the possibility to register for the conference without submitting an abstract. Abstract submission is a separate process.  Please see below for more information on submissions.

Alternate Registrations:

If you need to register for the conference and utilize two different sources of funding, please select the Alternate General or Alternate Student Registration option on the Registration page.
For example:
A government employee (i.e. National Weather Service) registers for the conference and chooses to attend the banquet and purchases a High Plains Polo Shirt.  The employee's management provides funding for the conference registration, but the banquet and shirt are not permitted on the same payment account and will have to be paid for by the employee themselves. 

What to do:

  1. To bypass this, an attendee may select the Alternate Registration for your status (General population or Student).
  2. The attendee will be charged the registration cost, and has the option to select the Banquet and/or Polo or T-shirt for 0.00 dollars.
  3. When sent to the secure PayPal website you will only be charged for the Conference Registration, but will be listed as registered for the banquet and any pre-order shirts.
  4. When arriving at the conference and checking in, the balance for the options chosen will be due before check in will be completed. 

Note: Any conference shirts chosen with this option will be charged at the pre-order cost, even though they will be purchased at the conference location. If you do not select the shirt with your registration, but purchase it at the conference then the price will be the higher non pre-order amount.
