If you have not already registered for the 2021 Conference and Convention of the American Council of the Blind please read on for important information.
This year registration involves two steps:
Step 1: Creating a Member Account
If you didn’t register for the ACB radio holiday auction you may not have a member account. To create a member account, go to https://members.acb.org and click on create an account. Please fill in all the fields. Once you create your account you will be back to the login screen. You will need to wait two days before you take any additional action to give our computer system time to authenticate your account.
Step 2: Registering for the Convention
If you have an account or have waited two days after creating your account you are ready to register.
Here are a few things to keep in mind when you are completing your registration form:
The fastest way to access convention registration is to visit https://members.acb.org. You will enter your username and password to log in, and will then go to the convention registration link. After reading the introductory information click on the button that says “begin with preferences”.
There are two sections in the registration where you need to enter on accept to proceed. On the merchandise screen you will accept that you understand that there will be an additional shipping charge on any merchandise. Once you have reviewed your shopping cart and are ready to proceed to checkout, you will need to read and accept ACB’s code of conduct.
Remember that if you have not created a user account with ACB you must do this at least 2 days before you will be able to register. Registration closes on June 28. If you don’t register for a user account in time, you’ll miss out on the early bird registration rate. If you would like to register for convention after the deadline, you will have to wait until July 15 to sign up and will pay a higher registration fee.
If you need assistance creating your account, have forgotten your username and/or password or need assistance registering call Janet Dickelman at (651) 428-5059 or email her at Janet.firstname.lastname@example.org.
