More than 560 Academy members as of this writing have taken advantage of registering online for the Annual Meeting. Located in the "1999 Annual Meeting" section of the Academy's web site, online registration can be easier than sending advance registration materials by mail or fax. The Academy has a link to International Travel Service's web site to make housing reservations.
An Academy identification number is all you need to access the special password-protected online registration section to submit requests for instructional courses, Specialty Day and special events. Once registration choices have been made, a credit card number must be submitted for payment. The Academy has set up an encrypted system to ensure security of credit card transactions. Confirmation of registration requests are mailed by the Academy within 10 days of receipt.
The online registration section also contains detailed descriptions of courses, activities offered in the Extended Program and Academy business meetings. Program tracking including the Subspecialty Guide to the Annual Meeting also is available on the web site.
