Registration Walkthrough

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 paper that accompanies your issue of M/m. This is not a required step.

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

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 for the 2014/15 year, you may select the "conference only" rate. You will be asked, however, to enter your membership number to verify your membership status.
