Attendee Registration

OR

  • Register online by completing the form below.  After registering online, you will proceed to PayPal to complete your payment, where you can securely use a credit card or pay using your own PayPal account.  A PayPal account is not required if simply using a credit card.  After completion of the forms, you will automatically receive by email an acknowledgement of registration with a unique registration number and additional detail about your registration.

After registration, any changes need to be directed to the ALCON Registration team at RegistrationALCON2018@mnastro.org.
