Registration - Events/Meetings That Use PayPal:
We strongly recommend that members register and pay for meetings and events online using PayPal when requested. Using PayPal is a one-step process that registers and pays for your entry at the same time, and you do not require a PayPal account to use the service - any major credit card will do. The advertising for most events and meetings (located at the Events and Meetings page) will show registration options and a PayPal "Buy Now" button. (If you really don't want to use PayPal, how about volunteering to handle the manual registration and cheque payments?)
If PayPal is an available event/meeting registration option, you MUST use the 'Buy Now' button at the Events and Meetings page! After selecting the 'Buy Now' button, you will be taken to the PayPal site to complete the transaction.
