Credit Card Surcharge: 
We are not raising the registration fees, however, we are now adding a 3% surcharge to any credit card purchase in order to cover the cost of credit card transactions.   Why are we doing this?  In 2017, we incurred $4,406 in credit card expenses for just the annual meeting and another $730 for Vasculata.  In 2015, the total was $6,630.  Rather than simply raising all registration fees, NAVBO council and meeting organizers believe this is a fairer way to handle this expense.  If you pay by check, you can avoid this surcharge.

To pay by check, use this form.  We know that institutional checks can sometimes take long to process, so you may fax or email the completed form prior to mailing it in with your check in order to secure your workshop.  

We have secured a block of rooms at the Parkway Hotel for housing.  The hotel is located on the campus and is an easy walk to the meeting site.  Attendees will need to make their own reservations, but we will help with roommate matching.  Indicate your need for a roomate on the Vasculata registration form.
