If you register and pay for the 2011 MSBO Annual Conference & Exhibit Show by Tuesday, February 1, 2011 you will receive an Early Bird discount. Regular registration will be $275, but early bird registration is $240. You can cancel your registration at any time up to two weeks prior to the Conference and pay only a $25 processing fee. If you take advantage of the Early Bird registration, you’ll need to select specific clinic sessions at a later date once the program has been finalized. You’ll receive an e-mail notice when that’s ready. Please note that you may register now for the Pre-Conferences; however, certification class registration will come later.
Register now and you could win one of these three prizes: one night's lodging, a suite upgrade or an iPod Nano. The earlier you register - the more chances you have to win. Drawings will be held in January, February, March and April.
Conference Registration Scholarships Available
The MSBO Board has authorized scholarships for members to attend the 2011 MSBO conference and SET SEG has agreed to continue making a generous contribution for partial support of these scholarships. The scholarship covers the cost of registration for the full conference or a one-day registration. Scholarships do not include the Pre-Conferences or certification classes offered before the Conference. Recipients are responsible for their own transportation and lodging. MSBO will notify you regarding the status of your scholarship application approximately one to two weeks after it is received.
For the Early Bird registrants: Fill out the registration form or register online.
For Scholarship registrants: If you are applying for a scholarship you cannot register online. You must fax the scholarship application and registration together to 517.327.0768.
When the clinic topics and speakers are confirmed, we will contact Early Bird registrants to select their sessions. Certification classes and specific topics for Pre-Conferences will be sent to you at a future date.
