Contact information, including email address, is required for each attendee.
  • Search the member lists of the DDW societies to determine if attendees in their group are society members.
  • Receive copies of all emails sent to attendees in their group.
  • Schedule an onsite appointment to pick up registration materials for all attendees within their group. Failure to arrive at the scheduled appointment time may result in a delay in receiving registration materials.
  • Make name corrections at no charge (see below).
  • Make substitutions at a nominal fee. Groups receive special consideration, as substitutions are not allowed for individual attendees!
