Conference Registration 

A new policy has been established that registration for all conferences is for Members Only.

Registration for the Annual covers all events from Sunday evening through Thursday afternoon and those who pay in-person fees may also access virtual sessions during or after the conference ends.

After a member reviews the presentation  slides online, they may decide to watch the recordings which are available to them through the extension of Virtual Conference Registration.  Therefor we have decided to modify the previous practice to gain more support for our events in the future,

We want everyone to experience the great benefits of being a PIUG member! All non-members will receive a complementary membership for the rest of 2024 with their conference registration.  Use the "New Member" code to sign up and start taking advantage of everything PIUG has to offer today!

It is also suggested that if you would qualify for a lower Membership Rate (i.e. retiree, student, unemployed or from an Emerging Country) that you first go to the Membership Page and join prior to registration.
