2017 IAPS Convention Registration is now sold out.
If you would like to be placed on our waiting list Click HERE.
We are closed to New Registrations and any registration changes. If you have an EXISTING reservation you may access it and see/print your schedule using your password.
Read these Instructions first, then Scroll to the Bottom of this page to Register.
Each artist attending the convention must register. At the bottom of this page click on Create New Registration, then follow these numbered steps to work through the three segments of your registration. We recommend for best results you complete your registration on a computer or tablet, not a cellphone.
Tab 1: MY CONTACT INFO
Fill out Your Personal Information
Complete all personal information requested. Click on appropriate registration fee. If you select Artist - IAPS Member you will also need to click on your society name. If you belong to more than one society, select the one you prefer to appear on your convention badge.
If you are bringing a non-artist companion or spouse, click on ADD and enter their name. Their registration is part of yours, they do not create a separate registration. Their $75 fee allows them to participate in all convention events, except they may not take classes. A special badge and tickets for your companion will be included in your registration package. You can add up to three companions online.
Would you like to Volunteer?
Click the volunteer box if you are willing to give 3 hours to help at the IAPS Convention. You will be contacted closer to the convention by our Volunteer Coordinator to work out a job that suits you and which fits in between your classes.
Click on Save Step & Go Next to save your info and move to Tab 2.
Tab 2: CLASS SELECTION
Review carefully and click on the classes you wish to book. The system does not let you sign up for two classes at the same time, or for the same class if it is given more than once. If a class is full you cannot select it. Waitlists will be kept on Workshops only - see Registration Information for more info. Note that your class choices are not actually confirmed until your payment has been accepted.
Click on Save Step & Go Next to move you to Tab 3.
Tab 3: OPTIONAL DINNER EVENTS
Book your choice of meals. Add a guest if you wish or skip this step.
Click on Save Step & Go Next to save your info.
You may now go back through all three tabs and make any changes you wish. When all three tabs are complete click the yellow button SAVE/Review & Checkout. This will take you to your Registration page.
(Your Name) registration page
Review Your Registration Here
Carefully review your classes, optional meals, schedule and charges. If you wish to go back to add another class or dinner ticket or to change something click on Return to Registration Form. Make your changes. Click on SAVE/Review & Checkout to return to this page.
Saving Registration to Pay Later
If you do not wish to finalize your registration at this time, you may return to it later by clicking on Save Information/Not Confirmed/Pay Later. However, purchases are not confirmed until you do pay, and when you come later, some classes may be sold out and no longer available. You can return to your unpaid registration by logging in with your email and password.
Once everything looks ok, click (once only) on Proceed to Payment. It may take a few moments to respond. The secure payment page will then appear. Enter your credit/debit card information and follow the prompts.
Your transaction is not complete, and nothing is CONFIRMED until the payment is approved and you receive a confirmation page with your confirmation number and password. You can print this page and please keep the password and confirmation number so you can go back to look at your registration, or make changes like adding more classes or dinner tickets.
Check your confirmation page carefully and make sure all requested classes are confirmed. It is possible that a class could become filled between the time you check it and the time you process your payment. In this case you will only pay for classes that were confirmed.
Your Confirmed (Paid) Registration
Once paid, you can sign back into your registration with your email and password at anytime. You will now find a Status Box on the right hand corner. The Status Box shows that you are registered, and gives your CF (confirmation) number. If you slide your cursor over the word MY SCHEDULE you will see the classes that are now confirmed for you.
If you want to add an additional class, click on it, and it will show up on your schedule but is not confirmed until you pay for it.
Printout Your Registration Record
Click on PRINT REGISTRATION RECORD to print out a detailed confirmation of what you have paid for. We suggest you bring a printed copy with you to the convention, although there will be a copy in your registration package.
The 2017 Registration is now closed for class changes or cancellations until the Convention. No further registration fee refunds will be issued. If you cancel a spot in a class and it is re-sold, you will receive a refund for that class fee, minus $25, after the Convention.
However, if you have an empty spot in your schedule, you can still go in and add a class until May 15.
CONVENTION REGISTRATION LOGIN
Your registration form will open in a new window which may be behind your current window; you may have to look on your desktop.
NO CHANGES may be made to your Registration record at this point. You may log in to view your registration and print a copy of your schedule.
