Group Rate Frequently Asked Questions

CCSA offers group registration to enable you to register more than one individual from the same school or organization at one time.

If I'm entering all the registrations for my group, as opposed to the individuals entering their own registrations, do I have to complete the registration process for each person individually?
[ + ]
No, you may register your group as a Group Administrator, whether or not you are attending. Select that you are entering registrations as part of a group, then as a Group Administrator. If you are attending the conference, you need to be sure to register yourself as a group member when registering the rest of your group. You will assign a group name and enter contact information for the group, as well as each group member's name, job title and email address. Finally you will be able to enter one payment for your group as a whole. Each registrant will receive a confirmation and you will receive a summary of the group's registrations.
Can individuals enter their own registrations and still be part of a group?
[ + ]
Yes, they will select that they are registering as part of a group, then as an Individual group member. They will be asked for the group number. To receive the group discount, all members of your group must use the same group number. They need to enter their own contact information, but they will have the option of using their own method of payment or including themselves on the group Purchase Order.
If I am registering attendees that qualify for the discount, and some who don't, can I combine them for the group rates?
[ + ]
Yes. However, the Special Discount will be applied only to the individuals who qualify.
What if I have an administrator who also teaches some classes?
