How will I know my registration was received?
Online Registrations: You will know almost immediately that your registration has been processed when you receive an on-screen confirmation followed by an email at the address you entered. If you do NOT receive an on-screen confirmation and/or an email confirmation you failed to complete the registration process or entered an incorrect email address.

Mailed Registrations: You will receive a confirmation via email or mail within two weeks.

If you believe you registered and did not get a confirmation you most likely are NOT registered for Conference, please contact meetings@narts.org

Member or Non Member Registration—Why it Pays to be a Member
Discounted Member Registration is offered to NARTS members in good standing.

NOTE: Membership in NARTS is individual, NOT by store or organization. If any registrant is not personally a member, use our convenient online membership applications to join them.  2nd and Additional Member Registrants MUST be from same store as 1st Member Registrant. (You can process the membership application and then immediately register them for conference at the discounted member rates.)

Because we offer even deeper discounted Member Registration rates for 2nd and each Additional attendee from the same store, there is a substantial savings by joining all registrants from the same store as NARTS Associate members for only $36 a year per person.  When attending as a member instead of a nonmember the savings for the 2nd Member Registrant is $114 and $134 for each Additional Member Registrant (3rd, 4th, etc.).

If only one person from your store is attending it still pays to join. When you become a member, your full membership fee plus the member rate for conference registration is only $45 more than the nonmember rate for conference registration... and, you receive all the member benefits, including monthly newsletter, store listing in our Shopping Guide, access to our Members Only Facebook group and the many features offered in the Members Only section of our Website, discounts on most books from our bookstore; and more.
