Q: I am having difficulty registering for conference events online. Please help!
A: To enable registration for conference events on the PennABA website, you must first create an online account (even if you are attending as a non-member). If you do not already have a registered account, you can create one here. If you have registered online before, you can continue to use the same log-in information as in the past. Plus, by maintaining your online account, you can track CEUs, event attendance, and membership status from year to year!
If you prefer to register by mail, please use this form.
Q: How do I register a group for conference events?
A: Please fill out the Group Registration form in its entirety. After entering your information, you will be directed to enter the names, e-mail addresses, and membership levels for the individuals you want to register. We will send a follow-up invoice for you to pay via PayPal to complete the Group Registration process.
Q: How do I receive the discounted room rate at the Hershey Lodge?

Q: What is PennABA’s transfer and cancellation policy for the annual conference?
A: Registration transfers (attendee replacements) and cancellations for the conference received up to 2 weeks prior to the conference will be processed within 21 business days. Cancellations made after this deadline will not be refunded. Transfers made within 2 weeks of the conference will be processed on site at the PennABA registration desk. There will be a $50 processing fee for transfers. There are no refunds for membership fees.
Q: What types of continuing education credits (CEUs) do you offer?
A: We currently offer BACB. They are offered at no additional cost to attendees. Just be sure to mark which type you need at registration and bring supporting information (BACB number and/or PPID number).
A: We have offered Act 48 CEUs to attendees in the past, but are no longer able to offer them starting in the 2018 conference year. Attendees wishing to pursue Act 48 credits for attending the conference may obtain a certificate of attendance at the conference and submit to their prospective employers, who can then submit hours. PAttan has shared that the attendee may or may not qualify for the CEUs. If you have any questions, please contact PAttan or PennABA at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: How do I pay for conference registration with a check or purchase order?
A: Yes! Please submit a paper registration form and payment to P.O. Box 361 Hershey, PA 17033.
Q: Are there any registration discounts or scholarships available?
A: For a limited time, PennABA is offering an early registration discount of $10 per event. Hurry, this offer expires on February 15, 2019! Unfortunately, we are unable to offer any registration scholarships at this time. We do highly recommend becoming a PennABA member ($65 or $35 for students) as this entails you to significantly lower pricing on all PennABA events!
