RATES

Temporary Registration Closure:
Dec 13th at midnight EST and will reopen Jan. 11, 2018.

If you haven’t already registered for the 2018 conference in Pittsburgh or renewed a membership that has expired, please consider doing it before midnight on December 13. The impending system upgrade, first announced in the NCECA e-news of September 7, 2017, will begin just after midnight December 13, 2017. Any transactions or changes made in the database after the start of this process will not transfer to the new database. For this reason, NCECA’s conference registration system, online store and membership portal functionality will be temporarily suspended beginning December 14, 2017 and will reopen on a new server and platform on January 11, 2018. During the time that the database is closed for transactions and changes, all records held within the historic NCECA database will be exported into a new system, tested and verified. This change is being made to provide greater value for NCECA members and conference goers in the days, months, and years ahead. Now that NCECA is involved year round with opportunities, conference program submissions, and online experiences, it is hard to find a time to make this transition in a way that will cause the least disruption possible. Registration and membership transaction traffic has been relatively light over the winter holidays the past few years, and it is our hope that our friends in clay, creation, and learning will be patient while we work through this transition.All conference registrations already made for the 2018 event in Pittsburgh will transition to the new system. Once the new system opens and is ready to take registrations, a message will be transmitted that provides further details about how to work within it. If you haven’t yet registered for CrossCurrents: Clay and Culture, NCECA’s 52nd annual conference, and are unable to get to it before December 14, please know that early bird registration rates will remain active after the transition to the new system until January 31, 2018.   Thanks for supporting NCECA. We look forward to reconnecting with you on the other side of this database transition!
