Registration For 2009 Is Now Open!
Posted 01 September 2008 - 11:49 PM
If you registered last year, the username and password you created should still work. When you log in, it will ask you to choose a badge name and badge options.
Note that this year you will not be able to choose your badge type. Instead, the system will automatically charge you based on the tier during which you pay. If you have children, infants, or other young ones under your care, they must be registered under a separate account (one acccount per person, always) and in a group with you. The system will automatically figure out who gets child and infant pricing.
You can change your info this year, and we encourage you to do so, so that your badge is mailed to the right place. You can also choose to have a Charity Masquerade Ball Ticket included with your badge. This is not the Masquerade, but is an entirely separate event. Questions about the event can go to specialevents AT acen DOT org.
Any questions about registration can go to acenreg09 AT acen DOT org.
Have fun, folks, and, please, be gentle.
