The decision has been made, for the benefit of all individuals who intend to attend our 2019 Annual Meeting, to maintain the registration rate at the early bird pricing of $45. In addition to that, the club has been able to open the option of a promotional discount to registration if payment is also made through BonTempTix to cover individual membership dues of $25.
To do this, go to the Membership tab FIRST and pay your individual membership fee. Then when you purchase your registration ticket, your registration fee will drop by $15 to only $30 automatically, so that the total of $55 will cover your dues and registration. This way you can use your credit card to promptly execution of your transaction. We are excited to use this new, Louisiana-based service. We believe you will find it very satisfactory.
If you have already mailed your registration of $55, you will have the choice of applying it to this discount, or a refund of $10 to cover the lower priced registration without the discount. This limited-time offer ends November 23, 2019 and is only available through 2019 Annual Meeting attendance.
