Registration Walk-Through

1. Member Number
Please have your membership number ready if you would like the webpage to auto populate your personal information. You may find your membership number in the monthly emails JHUP sends out to you and on the piece of paper that accompanies your issue of M/m.

2. Address Information
Please enter your current address information or verify that the "auto population" from the previous step is correct.

3. Registration Rates
Please choose the appropriate registration rate. You may pay for the conference fee and membership fee at the same time by using the "pay together" option.

If you have already paid your membership fees, you may select the "conference only" rate. You will be asked, however, to enter your membership number to the right of this option to verify your membership status (that is, you will have to enter your membership number again). If your membership is not current, the website will not let you choose this option (you will get an error message). if this happens to you, please choose the "pay together" option or (if you feel this is a mistake) contact JHUP customer service at: 1-800-548-1784 or

6. Conference Program Selection: We are asking all members to choose between a paper copy of the conference program and an electronic one in order to save paper at this year's conference. There will be FREE WIRELESS provided in all of the conference rooms & common areas. The online program will be the most up-to-date, and it will feature added content that will not be available through the print version. We will be using information from this question to determine how many programs to print on paper.
