Please be aware that we will no longer offer the option of making a deposit for your meeting. 
You will be required to pay in full for your meeting fee before you are guaranteed a space on the docket.

Beginning January 2020, any Candidate that registers for a subcommittee meeting and pays either the deposit or full meeting fee, will forfeit payment if the Candidate withdraws after the deadline to declare has passed, including being removed from the docket due to not meeting the deadline for materials submission. 

This policy will not apply to those withdrawing due to emergencies or unexpected illness.

The spaces are first come first served.  No slots will be held for anyone.

If your center is paying and you need an invoice, please email to request one after you have submitted your completed Appendix 9.
