Registration FAQs

I registered before I had been notified about a registration grant and just learned I was approved for funding. What should I do?

Please email to request a refund. This process can take a few days, so please be patient.

When I am logged in and completing my registration form, I am seeing the wrong registration rate (i.e., non-member when I am a member who recently joined or renewed). What should I do?

This most likely means your ESA profile is not reflecting your current membership status with ESA. If you joined or renewed the same day you are registering, please try logging out and logging back in. If this does not resolve the issue, please email us at and we can look into this for you.

Can I register someone else for the meeting?

You can register someone else, but it requires logging in to their account and using their credentials. If they do not have a profile with ESA, you can make one for them and register from that account.

After answering the questions on the registration form, I am having trouble proceeding to the next step. What should I do?
